You can try holding the control key while hitting the plus or minus key and see if it acts differently than the scroll wheel, but I imagine it will do the same thing.

According to a quick search, you have a menu tool for zooming text only. You can also install an extension called rightsizer that let's you right click the mouse for changes. Here's a description of it.

It's not Safari. It does that when I'm using Firefox or when I'm using some other app.

You said "Mac running Safari" and said nothing about it doing it with Firefox.

AFIK, today's Mac desktops use regular PC type components such as Intel cpu's, pci-e graphics from ATI, etc. That means that the problem is with the way OS-X implements keyboard strokes and mouse inputs. At one time Asustek made the laptops, so I would guess that the components are similar in them too.
I love sanding.
