This page explains two step-by-step ways to change the fonts in the Chrome web browser running on Mac OS X systems for every time you surf the internet.

Note: The following abbreviations for keys on the Mac are used: Ctrl is used for the Control key, Apple is used for the Command key, and Alt is used for the Option key. For keyboard access, make sure "Full keyboard access" is turned on--you can turn it on or off by pressing Ctrl+F1 at any time.


Step 1:  Click the Chrome Menu in the top right hand corner of the Chrome browser.

Step 2: Adjust Wed Content Settings

Scroll down and click ?Show Advanced Settings?. Then scroll down until you see the "Web Content" heading, as shown above. Once you?ve found the Web Content menu, click "Customize fonts?"

Step 3: Select your new font.

The preview on the right hand side of each font selection will update to reflect your newly chosen font. Take note: if your default encoding doesn't match the one needed by a website, the text may not display properly--so don?t go too overboard with novelty fonts.
