    Is it possible to make the text on Google Chrome as dark as that on Microsoft Edge?

    The following is what is shown on Microsoft Edge.

    Is it possible to make the text under 'Spam clearance' shown on Google Chrome as dark as that on Microsoft Edge?

    Possibly- let's see what the Webmaster has to say. To be honest, I'm a Chrome user and hadn't seen that there was a problem.

    I use Chrome too and the text is perfectly readable. The screenshot of Microsoft Edge you provided makes it look as if the text is in bold (which I dislike).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I retract my suggestion as both of you consider the present colour fine.

    Hi Matthew,

    The text displayed is coded so that it appears black, but not bold. In your screenshots there is a difference due to the way that the Edge browsed is rendering the text. It's not by design that this is happening - it's an issue caused by how different browsers display the same content.

    However, Google's Chrome browser actually allows you to edit the display fonts it uses to suit your preferences. Simply go to chrome://settings/ in your Chrome browser and expand the Advanced settings section, in which you should find an area called Web Content where you can change the font and styles to set it to bold or whatever you wish...

    Hope that helps!
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    On a personal note, I think Google have got the display right, but tastes differ.
