Fixing ugly UI fonts in Chrome and Brave

Don't need help, just thought I'd post this somewhere. The 'howto' section doesn't let new people post in it unfortunately.

I like using the Brave browser (a Chrome derivative) but the fonts on the UI were super ugly. I fixed this by adding the following to the top of my ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf file

<fontconfig>
 <alias>
 <family>sans-serif</family>
    <prefer>
            <family>Noto Sans</family>
    </prefer>
 </alias>
 <alias>
   <family>serif</family>
   <prefer>
     <family>Noto Sans Tamil UI</family>
   </prefer>
 </alias>
 <match>
  <edit mode="prepend" name="family">
   <string>Noto Sans</string>
  </edit>
 </match>

Anyway, hope that helps somebody. Thanks for reading!
