It's pretty obvious that it sometimes uses a different font manager,

Flag changed from --direct-write to --enable-direct-write , so try new one. Its landing bits by bits.. First they will add initial Direct Write support in their Skia library, remove Web Fonts usages... Bits by bits. I am also interested in this support, so I post every changelog related to it in here.. Follow up this thread... :)
Cool, will try the new flag later and I'm always keeping an eye on this thread just for DirectWrite support, lol

Exact method how to enable DirectWrite: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=25541#c61

1. Enable DirectWrite Flag

2. Enable Experimental Web Platform features flag

3. Add --no-sandbox commandline

Now it will work...

That was actually the content of my quote but I would not do that in your main browser. Disabling the sandbox is quite dangerous.

I really hope DirectWrite remains an option on Windows 8+ and won't be forced. ClearType is much, much better for displays without high DPI that don't rotate since it uses subpixel AA while DirectWrite on 8 and up uses grayscale AA.

but it was not telling how to enable subpixel font rendering which is behind enable experimental platform features. Never mind...

Another update (following up from comment #109):

 
--enable-direct-write now turns on subpixel font scaling, so no need to use the --enable-experimental-web-platform-features flag.

Anyone else having an issue where the browser is sluggish since the update to  34.0.1797.2 dev-m? At first I thought it was my connection, but it is running as fast as usual, cleared the history and am in the process of disabling the very few extensions I use 

 

Well damn, seems to be Adblock causing issues on sites, even like here and it's whitelisted

Had to completely disable any adblocking extension, both that I tried slowed it down, I'll try again after the next update
