The font in Google Chrome 37

Hello,

since i've upgraded to the latest version of Google Chrome v37 the font of the forum seems to be very strange. It looks a bit blury and hard to read.

Has anyone else noticed this?

I'm guessing this is because Chrome 37 is the first chrome to have DirectWrite support (a new way to render fonts in the Windows OS). You can turn off this capability in the Chrome settings:

chrome://flags/

Search for DirectWrite and set it to off..

Better yet, buy a chromebook and stop worrying about updates and viruses.

Chrome updates are more or less automatic.

That's what I used to think before I bought a chromebook . It turns out it can edit MS office files, do photo editing, and is a good replacement for a laptop for 95% of the folks out there.
