Starting today, this is what I see:

Chrome 22.0.1229.79 m, Vista

This only happens in Chrome (22.0.1229.79 m) and only on the main site. Meta looks fine. Other SE sites look fine. Not reproducible in Opera, FF, IE, or Safari.

Restarted and all. Tried swapping "tools" for "review" because it's shorter. Same difference.

No idea what's going on or whether anyone else is affected at all, but I thought I'd mention it.

Edit. Probably related:

Review stats

Again, only in Chrome, only on ELU main.

Edit 2. Yet another example:

Badge sliced up

Looks fine everywhere except in Chrome.

  • @Andrew Leach: That's an unrelated problem on an earlier version. I have Chrome 22.0.1229.79 m, same as OP here, and I don't have his problem. So far as I know, Chrome always updates itself to latest version - I seriously doubt there's an option to disable this behaviour. So maybe the problem is OP has an unrealistic setting for "minimum font size" or something. Commented Oct 1, 2012 at 3:14
  • @F It's not an earlier version: the comments indicate an error made it from beta into release. While the issue may be unrelated, it may also be related to Chrome's OS/hardware detection (which is what the SO question is about). It would probably be helpful if Reg could give some details of his hardware, and specifically whether it has touch-screen support or not and whether that's active.

  • @Andrew: A 4½-year old low-end HP PC with Windows Vista Home Something. I don't think touch screens existed back then.
