I know that I can increase the font size for the current item by pressing =, but how can I set the default size? I'm tired of having to hit = twice every time I come back to Google Reader, especially since I primarily use the mouse with it, and it's annoying to switch to the keyboard just to up the font size.


I'm not aware of any setting built into Google Reader. However, there are many styles already built (and you can build your own) and use the Stylish plugin for FF or Chrome. You can download some styles at userstyles.org With a minimal amount of CSS knowledge, you can modify the text to your liking.


For anyone who's interested, here's the stylesheet I wound up creating for Stylish:

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document url-prefix("http://www.google.com/reader/") {
  .entry-body { font-size: 125% }

This makes all the entries larger, not just the current one.
