Chat font is now slightly bigger
No, it's not your imagination. Chrome recently made fonts look slightly smaller, so I'm making the chat font size slightly bigger (from 8pt to 9pt).
If you don't like it, give yourself a week to get used to it. Plenty of other things on your computer have different font sizes. In a week, I'll decide if we need to do anything else about it.
We also made an update yesterday that seems to have drastically decreased lag, so...
