When browsing the web on 3840px screen I often zoom in to actually be able to use web sites. It seems however that neither Chrome or Forefox will make use of the srcset directives on such occasions, meaning that even for sites with srcset on all images (e.g. Wikipedia), pic look really ugly. Is there any browser extension, or other hack, I could use to make my browser display hires images when available? I prefer to use Chrome, Firefox or Vivaldi, so it would be great with something that works for one of them!


Turns out the answer is as simple as “reload the page”. When reloading, the best suited image is loaded in Chrome, Firefox and Vivaldi alike. Opera, on the other hand, does not seem to be using hires images even after reload.
