Learn Chinese in China

Chrome automatically converting characters


Recommended Posts

The language of my google account is set to full-form characters (繁體字) and recently Chrome started converting pages with simplified Chinese into full-form. This is only a visual change, as when I copy and paste the text into something else, it would be how it appeared originally. This is quite annoying, as I want to know if something is in simplified or full-form. Also, it over corrects things like 谷 into 穀, which is super annoying. It also messes with Japanese pages, which is super duper annoying. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this? I'd rather not be forced into changing the language of my google account to English if I can avoid it.
