    If you're up for a little tweaking in chrome, you can modify its behavior to show more zoom options: How to set a custom page zoom value in Google Chrome | Fluxbytes

    Have you tried the "Win key" plus "+" key to zoom out (and Win key plus "-" key to zoom in). It zooms to 200% (and allows for adjustment).
