Ctrl key & roller wheel

Were you aware that holding your control key and rolling your mouse wheel will change the text size? Try it in both directions.

I figured that little trick out a couple of months ago, but it doesn't work on every page, and it doesn't always stay that way. For instance, if I blow up the text on my home page and then leave, when I return home, the text may, or may not, be the same size when I left. I use that shortcut dependent upon the monitor I am viewing on. Good info though.

Another trick is to click your wheel, and you can scroll through a page without having to roll the wheel.

Yep, knew that, but it doesn't always work.

I think some pages, if you use, oh hell what is it, ctrl A, or Alt A, it changes the text font color to white?

EDIT: I just tried it and it didn't work with either. I'll try to figure out what it is. Used it to change font color on a page with black background and grey lettering that was really hard to see one time.

It was ctrl A. Trick used on black background with lettering. It "selects" it and turns it white, making it easier to read if it is some obscure color.
