Blurry font on German Google Maps ("www.google.de/maps")

  • Re: Issue: blurred font on webpages

    Once again the german Google Maps is displaying blurry fonts everywhere.

    On Firefox everything is just fine.
    It is the same for normal and private windows, so I guess no Extension is causing this issue, since I disabled all in Private Mode.

    I don't know if the developer team reads this or if they already work on this issue.

    Currently I have a workaround for this using an Extension called "Scripter" that automatically injects and executes some JavaScript Code on the German Google Maps Site

    Scripter Setting:

    onload (script will be run after all content loaded)

    The JavaScript code:

    var loc = location.href;
    var reg = new RegExp("https?:\/\/w{0,3}\.?google\.de\/maps\/?.*", "i");
    var substr = loc.match(/https?:\/\/w{0,3}\.?google\.de\/maps/i);
    var str = loc.replace(substr, "https://www.google.com/maps");
    var bool = reg.test(loc);
    if (bool == true) {
    var usr = confirm("Switch to Google.com?");
    if (usr == true) {
    	location.replace(str);
    }
    }
    

    The JS Script checks whether the current page URL contains "www.google.de/maps" and then switches to "www.google.com/maps".
    It's not very cool, but at least it works...

    Does anybody else have this issue or is it just me?
