I made a Chrome Extension that allows zooming into websites without changing their layout.

You can zoom in to websites or documents such as png or mp4, without changing the page layout. **You see a funny-looking profile picture and want to zoom in on it as easily as possible -- I'd say this would be the primary use case.** Totally different than the built-in browser zoom, and with many options, it can have lots of use cases. Especially useful for reading small texts without changing the page layout. Great for content creators. I believe it has massive potential.

It's simple, fast, and configurable:

Simply position the cursor and use the mouse wheel to zoom in/out at the desired location. You can compare this extension to pinch-to-zoom functionality on touch screens, or the Windows Magnifier. Many touchpads support pinch-to-zoom in a way that they trigger the built-in page zoom. You can intercept this action if you change the zoom activation key from "RClick" to "Ctrl". This way, you don't need a mouse wheel to use Smooth Zoom!

The first reviews are critical, please give it a 5-star review if this is what you were looking for and share it around so it gets featured in the store sooner! I hope this reaches millions of users! Thank you!
