I am a web developer and use Google Fonts intensively for creating web pages.

Just wondering why Chrome or Chromium browsers render Google Fonts from http://www.google.com/webfonts poorly/pixeladed in Ubuntu? Firefox and Opera works fine. I had this problem since Ubuntu 10.04, now upgraded to 11.10 running Gnome 3 (same with other desktop environments).

I see that Chrome doesn't have this problem Windows XP or Vista.

Here is the snapshot showing the problem. The font is Google Font called Alex Brush.

Thank you.

It actually works on my system. I know this doesn't help you (I don't know how to fix it) but it's something about your particular installation and not Lucid in general. –  gecko May 22 '12 at 18:35
    
have you tried editing ~/.fonts.conf , to make an exception for Alex Brush ? –  daithib8 May 31 '12 at 14:51
