Link: “Force enable zoom” in Opera 34 for Android

Did you know that 61% of mobile sites don’t allow you to zoom? We’ve fixed that for you in Opera for Android 34, which we’ve released today.

I always teach my web design students to allow scaling in mobile web.

If you are making a web page, avoid user-scalable=no and avoid setting maximum-scale equals to minimum-scale.

Please avoid the following in web page:

<meta content='width=device-width, minimum-scale=1, maximum-scale=1' name='viewport'>

The only exception is that you are building a mobile web app, which the code is only used in native app, WKWebView or Android WebView. Only at that moment, you may want to disable the page zooming to mimic app behavior.
