This is the feature i'm looking but not quite how it does. It's higly annoying when it zooms and breaks the page everytime you double click for other reasons. For instance when you use google drive. You normally double click to open a folder. I don't want to zoom the page at that point. I keep it disabled since the page breaks and needs to be reloaded when it accidently zooms after double click. I need something like ctrl + double click.

Finally! Thank you for this extension, was way too hard to find, you'd think it'd be a standard chromebook settings option but it's not. Thank youuuuus!
