Probably, yes... BUT... (and I think it's a big but) not all systems can hover. We don't know what to expect for tablets (although using your phone to log into your tablet seems, um, odd) or for systems with various assistive technologies in use. (Or kiosks, where there may be no mouse, but a touch screen.)Probably "enlarge on hover" and "launch SQRL on click" would be reasonable.
Why wouldn't it? I have a Win10-based tablet/convertible where pinch-to-zoom works like a charm. I don't own a single device where it doesn't work, actually. (I don't own any Apple products so I can't speak to that ).and probably never works on a Windows machine
My point about bias was that Steve is an iOS user. As I stated above, it was something I tried on a Windows tablet some years ago, and it didn't work, and I decided to avoid that device by returning it.Has worked for me every time on iPhone and iPad.
It would only be "relying on hover" if there was no pinch-to-zoom, which should be present in every browser on every modern touch device. That being said, I'd be completely fine with click-to-zoom as well, since there will always be a separate button to launch the SQRL client anyway.My overall point is that I think relying on hover is not a good idea.
