I installed Monaco font and it looks great in terminal:

but it looks ugly in the browsers:

How can I fix such a behavior? I would like to see the correct font in web pages too.

How are you getting it to show on web pages? Are you overriding the standard fonts? –  Oli Dec 5 '13 at 10:03
@Oli The CSS says that. For example the very this textarea (when writting a comment) have this rule for font-family: textarea { font-family: Consolas,Menlo,Monaco,Lucida Console,Liberation Mono,DejaVu Sans Mono,Bitstream Vera Sans Mono,Courier New,monospace,serif } I guess you noticed the Monaco font that is placed before Lucida Console or monospace that look ok. –  Ionică Bizău Dec 5 '13 at 11:20

I am so glad that this was fixed.

Here is the commit that fixed this: a new font.

It can be installed using the following command:

curl -kL https://raw.github.com/cstrap/monaco-font/master/install-font-ubuntu.sh | bash
