It is very tedious now to insert pics and links. Pics (and videos) are no longer embedded by pasting their link and link URLs are no longer converted to links - one has to explicitly paste them into the "Link" and "Insert other media" windows. I have no idea how to embed videos now - there is no option for that.

Edit: back to normal for a while, but mostly not

The only thing different I notice so far is the "quote selection" button now instead of "quote this" and the default search option within a thread no longer being "This topic", but "Everywhere".

MultiQuote and Autosave don't work for quite a while already.

This isn't strictly forum engine feedback, but I had my previous post in the old feedback thread and that's closed now, so this is the next-best place:

I got annoyed enough to finally do something about it tonight, and my first plan of action was to try a local stylesheet to see if that fixes anything. It didn't really (minor improvement, but not enough to be worth it), but in the course of that I ended up looking for information on the forum engine's default font Roboto, and 'lo and behold. The Chromium bug report linked from that page isn't overly informative about why this suddenly started happening in mid-May, but both pages allowed me to track down and solve the issue: Apparently Dell notebooks like mine come with a thin version of the Roboto font pre-installed (for some Dell support program, I guess), and Chrome was erroneously calling on that alternative font file rather than the proper Roboto font. Deinstalled the font as advised, and one Chrome restart later everything's back to how it should be.
