how to set custom zoom level between predefined jumps

Hello,
 
I need to know how to set a specific zoom level for a page. When I use the + button on a wrench menu or press ctrl+ on the keyboard the zoom jumps in predefined intervals which are rather large. I sometimes jump from a zoom that is too small to one that is too large. Is there a way to input the zoom level manually to what I want, say 150%. If there isn't is there and extension that will let me do this? I haven't been able to find one of those either.
 
Thx, Maria

I would like to have the ability to have own custom zoom too. Sometimes I just want text a little bigger, say 110%, but it seems to me that Google Chrome only have option which jumps right to 120%..

I concur, as for some websites, given my screen resolution, 100% is too small to read, but 120% is absurdly big =/

Yes please make it so you can set a custom zoom level, not the huge increments from 100% to 83% etc

Google has implemented some funky logic to determine zoom percentages, and it sucks big time. We need standard 10% increments, which is normal and what users expect.

Yea, I mean who thinks "10% smaller, 3/4 original size, 2/3 original size, 1/2 original size, 1/3 original size."
