Optimal web browsing with a high resolution (1920x1200) display?

I have two computers with high resolution displays (1920x1200). They're great for graphics, but they suck for web browsing.
The problem is that in the default settings (using IE), the text is way too small.
Zooming in works fine for pages of fixed width (e.g. news sites like NYTimes.com), but it doesn't work well for most blogs and forums, because the lines of text end up being wider than the display, and you then have to scroll left and right.
I've also tried increasing the text size, which works OK for some sites, but on others the lines of text run together if the text is too big.
Surely there must be a better way to deal with this, aside from individually adjusting the zoom and text size every time I got to a new web page?
