You might be interested in a keyboard shortcut
that enables you to use a scrubby slider with
the magnification box (zoom % box).
Hover your cursor over the magnification box.
When the cursor turns to an I-beam, press the Ctrl (command)
In cs5 the cursor will turn into a hand similar to the targeted adjustment
Then just use it like a scrubby slider to zoom the image in and out.

On a Mac, in CS5 with Magnifier tool in hand, or Command Option to temporarily get it, scrubbing right and left within the image area fluidly zooms in and out respectively. No need to try to target that tiny little percent window... however the percent does change as you scrub to reflect the current magnification.
That's a good point.
I guess i'm just not used to open gl enabled fuctions, yet.
I couldnt get the scrubby to work over the %%% zoom area, stayed as an I bar.
The Control Option didnt work either to make a quick switch to magnifier.. for me its Space+Command (plus sign) Space+Alt/Option (minus sign)... either works to zoom in and out tho, so I guess I will just use Command+Space and scrub sideways.
