I want to force Chrome fonts to be consistent on every site I visit. The Chrome preferences don't affect this at all.

I found this link which states which webkit settings to edit to accomplish this, but where are the preferences stored on linux?

Chrome keeps it's settings in the .config directory.

The file you're looking for is .config/google-chrome/Default/Preferences

Thank you for the very concise answer. Sadly, changing these preferences did not help at all. They change headings and titles on things like the Chrome console (ctrl+shift+j) but not much else. I think if I replace the Arial font on my machine with something nice it should do the trick. – sova Jan 28 '11 at 0:41
