    Default Continuing font problems in Chrome with Mac OS X

    Maybe someone here can help me out here: I'm battling with Mac fonts in Chrome since Chrome's introduction. Does anyone know how to change the default font in Chrome to a something else than Times? A search in the Chrome Forums didn't have anything on my specific issue ...

    I know how to go "Under the Hood" and change font settings, but while they "stick" in that prefs pane, they don't stick anywhere else, see the screen shot below.

    Then I was looking for "custom.css", referenced elsewhere, hoping I could make the change there, but I was not successful in finding this file on my Mac.

    I really would like to make Chrome my default browser, but as a designer I can't live with speed alone, esthetics are immensely important as well. I would love to see most everything in Helvetica, Times is just too difficult to read on-screen ...

    Default

    Two more screenshots to show the difference, one is Safari, the other (in Times New Roman) is Chrome. Why this difference and how to get rid of Times in Chrome?
