workaround for Chrome's small fixed-width font

Okay, so, ever since Chrome broke its ability to change the default font settings in their Options menu, we have had to deal with a really tiny fixed-width font for editing notes and even writing in this forum.

I decided today to check if it was fixed (in version 5.0.342.9), and it almost is!

Here's what you have to do:
* Go to the wrench menu, and select Options.
* Go to the third tab "Under the Hood", scroll about 3/4 of the way down, and select "Change Font and Language Settings".
* Note that the fixed-width font says size 13. We want to change this to match the other two, so we click "Change..." and go change the font size to 16.
* Upon hitting OK from the change screen, we see that the fixed-width font says size 16. We can close the options menu and be done with it.

Here's the trick though: don't go back and check if the setting stayed as you set it. It does stay, but only until you look at it. If you go look, it actually says 13 again, and if you close from the window with it reading 13 it will actually revert to 13. So don't look! (Or if you do, go back and fix it to 16 again.)

Ta-daaa~! :)
