Windows 7: Chrome font size

Chrome font size

Ive been messing around with Google Chrome 4.0 and I am really impressed with its speed and overall performance, however the inability to set the font size is preventing me from making the switch permanent. I have heard that this is a problem with Webkit, however I find it hard to believe that such a basic option can not be included in a browser... Has anyone found a way to do this in Chrome 4.0??

Thanks..

Use the Beta Version of 4.0, it has the option.

Open Chrome > Wrench > Options > Under The Hood > Scroll down > Change font and language settings

Got it! It only applies to the stable build though, I just need to know what font size you need.
