Version 0.6.3

May 27, 2013

Easy to use extension that works with Firefox and Thunderbird

If you have ever had an image that was too large to fit on your screen or too small to see the finer detail in your browser or email, then image zoom can help. Image zoom gives you complete control of the size of most images displayed in mozilla based software. Both individual images or whole pages of images can be zoomed.
