Couldn't find another question about this.

But some characters are overlapping in codeblocks on SO.

screenshot of characters overlapping

The H and the e are overlapping in this screenshot. Today is the first day I noticed it. Using chrome 4 beta.


Weird, the characters aren't overlapping anymore now. It looks like the problem occurs quite random.

Edit 2: It occured again. The font used is Consolas. Just the default font I guess. I use Windows 7 with Chrome beta (36714). But I guess the problem lies with chrome then.

Question link is at stackoverflow.com/questions/742844/…. FWIW, that question looks fine for me in Chrome beta - have you got unusual font settings or extensions that might be affecting this? – Dominic Rodger Feb 2 '10 at 11:09
But the real question is, what is your OS? – random Feb 2 '10 at 12:20
Win7. No unusual font settings, and not aware of any site changing extensions. – Ikke Feb 2 '10 at 12:53
The problem lies in, "Chrome beta (36714)" (emphasis mine). This bug is Chrome's, not SO's. I believe Jeff has stated that Chrome 4 beta issues won't currently be addressed. – John Rudy Feb 2 '10 at 15:13
@state - you believe correctly: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/29816/… (see question comments) – Adam Davis Feb 2 '10 at 18:28

1 Answer 1

No problems showing that code in any other browser I tried. I guess you should take the bug report to Google then?

(To determine which font is used on your computer: see Utility to determine the font used on a site? at Super User.)
