What font does Google Chrome address bar use?

If it matters, here are the specifications of what I am using:

Google Chrome 5.0.322.2 (Official Build 38810) unknown
WebKit 533.1
V8 2.1.0.1
User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US)
AppleWebKit/533.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/5.0.322.2 Safari/533.1

  • Tahoma and Segoe UI are the system-wide interface fonts on XP and Vista/7 respectively. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tahoma_(typeface) and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Segoe

    Chrome on Mac OS doesn't seem to still use Lucida Grande. At least the comparison I did doesn't match.

  • depends on the version... it uses the system font, which is San Francisco as of El Capitan, but Lucida Grande for earlier versions.

Just want to note that, it can be changed in "Window Color and Appearance" window. Also you have to choose "Message box" in the item list, first. Hope this is useful ;)
