What has Google done to the new font rendering mechanism? Fonts look a little bit lighter and condensed when compared to other GDI-rendering browsers (the ones not using HWA). Is it a new step to support DirectWrite rendering?

Yep, updated a few days ago and it looks ridiculous to my eyes.

Oh why are there not any decent font rendering extensions for Chrome :/

I wish they could do something like IE 9. Best font rendering ever!

I'm wondering when they'll be updating the bookmark folder icons on the Windows version to a more modern looking icon. They've got "Windows 98" written all over them. Why not have it like the OSX version? Why not recolor those into having the same color as the OS's folder icons?

I'm wondering when they will fix the font rendering issue. Since Chrome v22 actually... either they are too thin or too bold depending of the websites.
