The font Google uses is Arial.


The following is pure speculation; I haven't tried it, so I can't guarantee that it is without risk.

I can think of three ways you could accomplish this:

1. You get in contact with the people at Google and persuade/blackmail/threaten them into changing it into something more to your liking.

2. You use the Firefox extension Greasemonky to run a script over the Google page to change the font to something more to your liking.

3. You use some other program that uses the Google search engine and has a font more to your liking.


Of the three, I would look at Greasemonky. I don't know if it can do this but it is your best shot.

i certainly not doing option 1 as we wouldn't have google if we did that.
I know lots of people prefer others to google.
