change chrome browser fonts?
« on: June 18, 2015, 02:18:39 PM »
I am looking for a way to change the UI fonts in chrome browser without changing the theme or increasing the MessageBox font size in Windows.  The latter makes the chrome font larger but all dialog boxes get bigger too.  Not good.  :)

Ideally something like the Firefox theme font and size changer would exist for chrome.

Just for discussion, are you looking for the Chrome equivalent of the FireFox Tools/Options/Content --> Fonts settings?

No.  I am looking to be able to change the fonts for the  UI elements of the browser itself.  Similar to Firefox theme font size changer AddOn.

The labels on the tabs aren't so bad.  But the statusbar font is a bit small.  On chrome forums they either say change the theme, which I could spend days doing without finding one where all is good, or change the Windows MessageBox text size.  The trouble with changing the MessageBox text size is message boxes for programs can then be larger than the desktop work area since they auto adjust to fit all the text in the box.

Edit: If I can't make the statusbar font larger even if I could change it to semi-bold it might make it easier to read.
