How to make the Arabic letters bigger WITHOUT magnifying your screen!

Many people have remarked that the Arabic letters here are very small and I agree that it is a horrible pain to keep un-magnifying your screen or losing the edges just to see the characters. However, even in google's search feature, the script is horridly tiny.

One clear way to fix this: use google chrome extensions.

Huruf ( حروف ) is a free Arabic script changer which can not only change the size but the style (font) as well. This is easily found by searching Huruf in the Chrome Web Store.

Wudooh ( وضوح ) is also a free Arabic script changer which I personally prefer to Huroof because it adjusts the size as you adjust - without having to reload - and you can whitelist certain sites if the big Arabic letters adjust the formatting severely. I also like the fonts a bit better. Funnily enough, the word Wudooh means clarity in Arabic.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE CHROME: tough luck; chrome is the superior browser

Ugg. Anyone have a non-Google method? Google and Amazon are not-to-be-used.

I have been using wudooh for months. DuoLingo scripts override these helpful extensions such as wudooh, high contrast... and you end up have to reopen to get them going again. It's ridiculous that we should have to use extensions at all.

Off topic (sorry), but maybe related?: My Arabic alphabet shows up as the Nastaliq script (used for Urdu and Persian, etc). Dunno why. Anyone having trouble reading the Arabic should try Nastaliq -- it's even harder, ha!

what is your favorite script? I have tried a bunch in Microsoft Word and ended up settling with Arial but it's a bit blocky. Often diacritics were landing outside the range of the line so I changed the paragraph>indents and spacing>spacing to 6pt before and after.

Welp, Huruf doesn't work for me. The font just stays the same.
