@jk
In this case it’s Chrome devs thinking they know better, but in general yeah

jeez. computers are a bit much arent they

weirdly actually, I CAN set the font to a 'medium' font but it makes the font in Chrome become bold???? so it's checking for a certain font weight and then using the font weight above??? which might explain why it's kinda bugging out and picking the wrong font if there isn't a font weight available then

okay - solved it
for some reason (either i changed something, or chrome updated, or just random i guess) chrome wants a "thin" UI font, but I had my OS "Message Box" font set to a medium font weight, so it just kinda freaked out and picked the first font it could find that wasn't the one I chose, which was SimSun since that comes first when you enumerate fonts apparently. so i've had to set my 'message box' font to a light font. which doesnt look as good but eh. what can you do really

managed to find this & turns out theres a registry thing you can change to just, idk, reset all the system attributes to what they should be?? and then it knows that it has space for the font maybe? so it doesn't have to just pick a new one??? who fuckin knows. so it seems to fix it but it also means i can't use a custom system font??

i have a feeling its some kinda localization problem. but all my OS settings are set to (combinations of) English US and English UK so ????

@chao @jk "A/B testing shows a 0.85% improvement in funnel progress and customer engagement when we use this fucking hideous serif font"

@jk

maybe google, in an update, decided that is the perfect font for chrome???

"yes, let's use this. it is the best-looking font we have ever seen. it is so [adjective]," they probably said (in unison, of course)

@jk sounds like you have installed a font... of *pain*

@jk just delete ALL the fonts on your computer.

Let's see Chrome get out of THAT

@jk see this is why you shoulddnt' have put your computer online

i bet if i find which font this is (probably gonna be hard since theres like 90 CJK fonts that have roman characters like those) and delete that font, it'll change to another, third, wrong font
