I highly recommend Opera, which zooms web pages (both text and graphics)  
perfectly on both WinXP and Mac systems.

It also combines e-mail and browsing in a single application, which makes  
many things easier.

The default browser on the Mac (Safari) is almost entirely unreadable for  
older folk like us.
