On a high-reslution screen with firefox, you can set in about:config


so everything in Firefox has double size.

Is there such a setting for chrome-browser as well?

  • The unfortunate truth: Chrome doesn’t do High DPI. See here for example. – Daniel B Jul 17 '14 at 8:03

I'm using google-chrome in Linux, and what worked for me was editing the launcher so that it passes the command line argument --force-device-scale-factor=2

e.g. in /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable

# ...
# Make sure that the profile directory specified in the environment, if any,
# overrides the default.
if [[ -n "$CHROME_USER_DATA_DIR" ]]; then
  # Note: exec -a below is a bashism.
  exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome"  \
    --force-device-scale-factor=2 \
    --user-data-dir="$CHROME_USER_DATA_DIR" "$@"
  exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" \
    --force-device-scale-factor=2 \
