Anyone know of a bug to track with Chrome's D2D support
where having D2D turned on makes certain fonts extremely bold (compared to D2D off)? (FF / IE not exhibiting this problem)

I had same issue in M37 where certain fonts got bold but eventually in M39 they fixed that, I would recommend you to try Chrome Canary to see whether that issue which I had got fixed for you or not.

  • Canvas: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable

     Accelerated 2d canvas is disabled on Windows systems with low perf stats

 

Canvas acceleration is disabled with last build on Windows 8.1 due to low perf stats, but I don't think my computer is low-end.

You are using Laptop (M on end of nvidia GPU indicated it), so it could be possible regression in Chrome side so they disabled it. I suggest you to install sideway Canary build to see whether they fixed it on that or not. Also confirm latest GPU version from both below. Lastly, I will suggest to file bug on: https://code.google....ium/issues/list

 

Intel latest GPU:

32-bit - https://downloadcent...eng&ProdId=3319

64-bit - https://downloadcent...eng&ProdId=3319

 

Nvidia Latest WHQL driver from here: http://www.geforce.com/drivers

Chrome Team might backport Battery Friendly last piece patch to M38, so it can be assumed, Chrome 38 will be much more battery friendly then current one:
