Hello

 

I use to be a big fan of Chrome browser but since a year I left chrome for firefox. The reason I came to hate Chrome was it's fonts rendering. Up to version 17 everything was fine with chrome, but some how they changed the way it renders fonts on windows. The fonts are less smooth and uneven and rough on the edges. After so many versions updates I am still shocked to see they haven't fixed that problem. I did some look up in google and people are complaining but they just don't care to listen. However I found a fix link below, but I am no coder and not sure how to do this.

Help would be greatly appreciated if you you guys let me know if there is a easy fix for this. And if not how do I edit the information from the link.

Ugh!  I had this problem a while back, after the latest update it got fixed (atleast for me).

The font rendering for Windows is being improved, although it will take a couple of months before it hits the stable channels.

The problem with CoolType/subpixel rendering is quite often the font-renderer were given/assuming wrong information about monitor's RGB-pixel geometry.

And when its happens, it will worsen the displayed fonts/texts.
