On MacBook, I like to zoom using gestures on my trackpad, as described here:

With a Multi-Touch trackpad or Magic Mouse, you can tap, swipe, pinch, or spread one or more fingers to perform useful actions.
Use Multi-Touch gestures on your Mac

(This is different than zooming with command++ or command+-.)

However, when I do this, many hover events don't work right. Like tag hover (and profile popup):

Here's a gif: http://g.recordit.co/Ji4Sn48BVu.gif.

As I zoom in more, the popup moves further away from where it should be.

I also noticed that it breaks SEDE graph hover; nothing happens when I hover over a point. (It should show the Y value.)

I am able to see the hover text (as in [description](example.com "hover text")) properly.

    Zoom is not supported, IIRC so it can't be a bug. The sites are designed to be looked at 100% and 100% only.
