Disabling font zooming in Chrome on Android Posted on

If you are here, you have probably tried disabling font zooming by using -webkit-text-size-adjust:100% and discovered it didn’t work.

Chrome conveniently ignores this non-standard property, so you need to use an inconvenient hack to disable what is called font boosting by adding the following line to your CSS file:

html * {max-height:1000000px;}

Your fonts should then appear as they should even on Android devices, and the zoom will work properly.
