Description

introduced with the issue #19097, the user was not allowed to zoom. this is a major offender opposing to a userfriendly mobile experience. there are a numbers of reasons to zoom on mobile ranging from bad sight all the way to read text on a screenshot attached to an image, which i did not want to download.

there is next to no valid reasoning to disallow the enduser to zoom on mobile devices, so please revert this change!
there was no reasoning behind this limitation in the issue either. The changelog stated only, that its not desireable to zoom, which does not mean it should be forbidden!

Patch included.

I agree that there is no reason to disallow zooming. W3C's HTML 5.2 specification says that "authors should not suppress or limit the ability of users to resize a document, as this causes accessibility and usability issues."

Setting the target version to 4.1.1.
