To have separate instructions for firefox on windows and firefox on mac and safari, would add a *lot* complexity. See <http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/eval/checks#zoom>

Can we just say four times and call that good enough for an easy check that "covers just a few accessibility issues and are designed to be quick and easy, rather than definitive. A web page could seem to pass these checks, yet still have accessibility barriers. More robust evaluation is needed to evaluate all issues comprehensively." ?

As far as I know, zoom text only functionality is no longer available in Chrome.
