surf and surf2 browsers

I use palemoon for my current browsing needs. Also I'm enjoying playing around with surf 0.7-2 (ascii repo) and surf2 2.0-5 (ascii experimental). Surf is using libwebkitgtk-3.0-0 and surf2 uses libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37.
I find that I cannot zoom-in on surf2 but can on surf.
I find I can play youtube videos on surf2 but not on surf.
If I can find a way to zoom-in on surf2 I would have both. Tried ctrl-shift-+  ctrl-shift-k  ctrl+
I can zoom-out on either app using ctrl-

I would be interested in surf2 related info mostly or just opinions of surf2.

*****Just to update. I downloaded surf-2.0 from suckless.org. Also,tabbed-0.6. I compiled(new to compiling as I failed ,mostly, before).
The most helpful info for surf was found on steve litt's site. Troubleshooters.com His article Surf Demystified was very helpful.
My thanks to Steve. I'll be keeping palemoon and surf for now.

Re: surf and surf2 browsers

On my keyboard, ctrl-- (control minus) zooms in and ctrl-+ (control plus) zooms out. This is surf2=2.0-9 from (current) ascii.

Re: surf and surf2 browsers

actually it's the  opposite for in/out .... it's page zoom and not text zoom, but ctrl-+ works now.
