Google allows changing the default zoom level for all pages in Chrome 9, here's how to change the zoom level:

Chrome zoom-level

  1. Make sure you use Google Chrome 9 (beta, dev), Google Chrome 10 (Canary) or a recent Chromium build
  2. Type about:flags in address bar
  3. Click "Enable" next to Tabbed Settings, then click "Restart" button at bottom of the page. This will restart the browser
  4. Click wrench menu and select Options
  5. Select Under the hood and pick a value from "Page zoom" drop-down.

If you don't like Chrome's tabbed settings interface, you can go back to standard settings dialog by disabling Tabbed Settings from about:flags.

Another option you can change from the tabbed settings interface is minimum font size (Under the hood > Web Content > Customize fonts > Minimum font size).
