To change your font please install unity-tweak-tool from software center, run it from dash and and choose fonts.

Also if the option "hinting" is not set to slight please do so,

EDIT We can do the same thing for chrome and see if that helps there

Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar. Select Settings. Click Show advanced settings and go to the "Languages" section Then default font and encoding Choose any font and see if this fixes your issue and let me know
