    The problem: Web pages don't format very well on the Droid Pro by default. The fonts are intially so illegibly small that you can't read anything. If you zoom in far enough that the letters are visible, the lines are so long that you have to scroll horizontally for every line read (= very inefficient).

    Here's a work-around I've found:

    Set your phone to auto-rotate the display. In vertical orientation, go to the web page you want. Pinch to zoom to whatever zoom level you want. Now turn the phone sideways, then turn it back. The web page will now be formatted so you won't have to scroll horizontally.
