Not really; many web sites don't have any idea about their size requirements, so this is just not possible.

Some websites use a fixed-width design, and there are now CSS selectors to change the style depending on the screen size. In theory it would be ...

I'll admit that I don't personally desire zoom on About System either. However, I would like to support an environment that fosters the ideas of newcomers. Closing a bug as invalid after less than a day with little or no regard to the thoughts of the bug reporter comes off as callous and is unproductive to the goal of creating the best operating system possible. In this case we have probably scared away a potential developer. ...

John Scipione wrote: Secondly, we should take into account the border width and tab size of the window. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any public way to do this so we are going to have to provide one. I simply faked it on Paladin by measuring and hardcoding the values used by the default decorator. BWindow however does provides this information from the private BWindow::_GetDecoratorSize() method. This needs to be made public if we expect zoom to be implemented seriously by third party apps. ...

Recently, a new developer sambuddhabasu1 asked if he could implement zoom on the About System window and so created bug report #11808 in order to serve as a platform for the feature. This bug report was then closed as being silly, and I have reopened it because IMHO it is not (completely) silly. The window is both movable and resizable so it makes sense for it to be zoomable as well. Now, Haiku won't live or die based on whether or not the About System window is zoomable or not, however, the developer asked if there were ...

[haiku-development] Network preferences (Axel Dörfler)

58 min 26 sec ago
Hi there, I had a look at the new Network preferences application in order to fix a few UI glitches. I'm a bit surprised by its design, to say the least: it seems to use add-ons for no good reason, or in other words, the add-on interface is so badly designed that it doesn't really make any sense. ...
