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?
