Picture about my chrome I've Ubuntu 16.04 and my problem is in Google Chrome (not chromium) the tabs fonts are blur. I tried change antialiasing in unity tweak, so my fonts are sharper in ubuntu, expect google chrome. Disturb my eyes. Also tried go to chrome://flags/#disable-direct-write and was looking for "DirectWrite" but i didn't find. So how can I get sharper fonts?

  • There's an extension for Chrome to it, but I think its too old: chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/font-rendering-enhancer/…. Could you try it? – Redbob Sep 6 '17 at 16:22

  • I tried this extension, i dont see any changes. I posted a screenshot of my browser. I used windows 10 before, and yesterday I installed ubuntu, in windows 10 it was sharp. I hope you see the blur. – sszdave Sep 6 '17 at 16:48
