Chrome is slowly wooing me from Firefox.

When I print on Firefox, I can have the page print at 80% of normal, and get smaller print and MORE on a page. When I try that on Google Chrome, I get the same amount of text as if I'd printed at 100% just in a smaller font ... with a lot of whitespace.

Is there a way to make Chrome do this?


In Chrome, telling it to print brings up the simplified Print dialog.

If you look at the bottom of it you will see where it says "Print using system dialog... (Ctrl+Shift-P)"

Click on that and you will have access to all the scaling functions that your printer supports, just like in Firefox.

  • No, it does not. Those printers that support scaling the printout never repaginate a document. Instead, they produce exactly what the OP says he doesn't want: Finer printouts with white margins. Firefox repaginates a web document. – user477799 Mar 18 '17 at 20:30
