Why do web pages look narrower on Linux than on Windows?

  • I see that the question is simple, it's very strange for me to see the webpages narrower on Linux. With other Chromium browsers like Vivaldi, Maxthon, Chrome, Chromium and Mirodi I don't have that problem.

    What's the origin of the problem or the different feature that make web pages look different?

  • I found the problem, I start Opera in Kubuntu and the origin is the DPI configuration. Opera works with 86 of DPI instead of 96 the others Chromiums browsers.

    I used this command line:
    opera --alt-high-dpi-setting=96

  • Opera tries to determine your system's DPI settings (the other Chromium browsers do not).

    In KDE, you can change this in KDE's control center via Application Appearance -> Fonts.
