I think this feature does not make sense anymore, because the zooming feature of browsers is more efficient.

I'm probably among the not so many users of this great feature and would very much like it to stay.
On my QHD monitor the default 82% letters are too small and require exertion to read while most of the screen is actually blank as everything is small. Setting the font size to 92% is perfect in my case.

The browser zoom feature is definitely a step down as that feature does a "graphical" zoom of everything meaning the images are stretched as if taking an image and resizing it to a bigger resolution producing a very ugly blurry display.

EDIT: Attached an image with comparison, left is browser zoom 110%, right font size: 92% (note that the letters are not the point, they are fine, but the images)

The icons in the right image are smaller than the right one, so uploading higher res images would help.

Having higher res icons would mean you would downscale them by default (lets say 32x32 icon, in a 16x16 space) ... I think that would produce the above issue by default, depending how good a browser is in downscaling. Although it would look good/better when zoomed.
