Here are some.

Use either Safari or Firefox with text-only enlargement.   Note, in
Firefox I use 28px font on my 13in Macbook Air.  That is equivalent to
20pt on paper.

http://www.google.com/  ... Ok in Firefox, squishes text in Safari
http://www.adobe.com/   ... Does not allow text only enlargement
Safari, bleeds in Firefox

Note: bleeding is when one column, line or element merges with
another.  Sometimes one is covered; other times the text is intwined
and unreadable.
Many times control text is truncated horizontally (squishing).
