Zoom one tab without affecting other tabs of the same domain!

Chrome doesn't let you adjust the zooming of different tabs under the same domain independently? Well you found the cure!

I know there are a couple of similar extensions out there. At first, I wanted to just download one and save myself some time. I soon realized that existing extensions out there for this purpose are so bulky and complicated. Some of them even ask you to install a daemon process that's available on Windows only - this is real bad, and dangerous, but also real bad.

This extension simply makes page zoom settings independent across tabs, regardless of whether they have the same origin. It's ultra-lightweight. It uses a built-in Chrome API, just a few lines of code, no configuration needed at all!

The source code is at https://github.com/xinan/zoom-per-tab which you can read to verify that it's not doing anything malicious. In fact I encourage everyone to read it because it's so simple. You could've written it yourself!

Can't figure how to zoom in/out on a Mac.

It works so nicely that I thought it wasn't working!
It replaces Chrome zoom (I had another extension, with an installable native component, that worked separately and I thought this would be the same).

I would love for it to remember the zoom level on a tab on refresh, but it works so fast that I even prefer it this way (100% by default, custom zoom at need).

@dev: great rationale for this extension as explained in the description! This is better.

Going back to the search page from a site freezes the page until you switch back and forth between windows, hopefully it will be fixed
