After an upgrade from version 36 to 37, the fonts in Google Chrome browser and its opensource variation Chromium look much worse. In the attached screenshot you will the same page viewed with version 37 (left) and 36 (right). The fonts on the left are visible fatter and fuzzier than in Chromium. Any way to fix it?
UPDATE: I googled and found that starting with version 37 Google Chrome comes with a feature DirectWrite with is meant to improve font rendering for Windows users. It seems the font looks in Linux is also affected by this. However, on Linux there seems to be no way to disable this feature using
chrome://flags. For now, I downgraded my browsers to a version prior to 37.
