Oh nooooow I see...
- ln -s'ed /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.3 3.4.3-20050110;
- installed opera (hey damn it's qquite good! even that kinda WFW3.11
feeling is gone.. )
- had a look at it's zooming implementation => obviously just
additionaly uses img tranformatrices in comparison to konqi
When I saw what it's doing I recognised the problem of my idea: page
boundaries. You preferably want to have your browser display the full
width of the page. Now if you show a scaled buffered rendered at 100%
incarnation (like a PDF) - you obviously straight away have to scroll
after zooming in. Didn't quite think of that...
Mhh. So it could be 2 (configurable! ;) ways then:
a) just like now + image scaling (and position grip, see #40277)
b) Document based rendering, with problems like page width and what Zack
mentioned (input transform..)

No it's not. But is usre'd look cool to zoom into the page smoothly and
back, like moving your had towards a piece of paper.. I thought KDE is
all about eye-candy? :D

NEVER! Alas it happens.

Any magical solution someone can up with?
