Ideal for users who interact with multi-language websites.

Summary

This extension allows you to customize font settings for different language scripts. For example, you can set the default font for Simplified Chinese content to be different than the font for Japanese content. The settings are per-script (as specified in ISO 15924) rather than per-language. For example, there is a single setting for Cyrillic script rather than separate ones for Russian, Ukrainian, etc.

Chrome will use the font settings controlled by this extension when BOTH of the following are true:

  1. The web page has declared the language of the content (e.g., by using the HTML lang attribute); and
  2. The web page has not specified a font to use.

To use this extension, add it to Chrome and then go to chrome://extensions and click on the "Options" link for this extension.

Hello, I hope you're having a splendid day! I am currently seeking opportunities to expand my business operations by investing in extensions with a significant user base, beginning from 50,000 users and up. No matter if your extension has a modest user base or counts its users in the millions, I am interested and ready to negotiate a purchase. If you are in possession of such an extension and looking to turn it into a profit, please consider reaching out to me. We can discuss the price and proceed with a transparent and secure transaction through a trusted escrow service based in the United States. It's great that Google allows the transfer of extension ownership between accounts, so your Google account ownership will remain intact.
