Google Chrome has a zoom option: click on the spanner button to the right of the address bar, and this opens a menu which includes a zoom option (which is rather crude, with large steps). One can also zoom with Ctrl & mouse-wheel.

The option to change the default text size is hard to find:

Click on the spanner button;
Select options;
Select “under the hood”;
Scroll down until you find “Web Content”;
Click the “change font and language settings” button;
Select “Fonts and encoding” tab;
Click the “change” button for the font type (serif / sans serif) you want. There doesn’t however seem to be any way of defining whether you want your default font to be serif or sans-serif, other than setting both types to the same font.
Select the font and size you like.
