Is there any way to change default fonts for certain languages on Chrome?

Asked by DominicX (28762points) April 2nd, 2011

I’m pretty sure I already know the answer to this question is “no”, but I’m still holding out hope…

Essentially what I want to do is to be able to read Japaense sites in the “Meiryo” font rather than the default crappy font that Chrome has set up for Japanese. As far as I know, there is no way to change the Japanese font without making Japanese the default encoding for the browser, which I don’t want to do.

Is there some way around this or is that all there is?

@DominicX you can read Japenese? Is there no end to your talents?

I don’t know about switching to Japanese Kanji, but click the Wrench in the upper right, click Options, and in the Options page, click the last selection on the left column, Under the Hood. You will find control of fonts there. Careful tweaking, though. Setting an internal style sheet that overrides what HTML authors set up means the page they laid out for a particular font and text size will display with something altogether different. This can often render page layouts an utter mess.
