    Question My Fonts in Chrome Look Horrible

    I switched to Chrome from Firefox and while I love the speed, my major complaint is the look of my fonts. I have gone to 'Settings' > 'Options' > 'Change Font / Language' & I see three options:

    Serif Font = Arial 16
    Sans-Serif Font = Arial 16
    Fixed-width Font = Arial 16

    Default Encoding = Western (ISO-8859-1)

    No matter what I do on this section, when I go to type messages in sites like Gmail or Facebook, the fonts are very thin and have to anti-aliasing structure or look smooth and rich like they do in Firefox. Can anyone please help me?

    No answer in almost one year? I'm sorry to see that. And I'm sorry, I don't have a solution either ...

    I found this post because I have a similar problem, since Chrome came out way back when. First the fonts didn't display, that got fixed eventually, but the default font is still Times, and that is not good. I've been "Under the Hood" many times trying other fonts to stick, they do stick in the prefs panes, but on most websites, including Google+ it still defaults to Times? What to do? Any suggestions? Please???

    I never liked Chrome, it's not good that such a minor problem is so hard to solve. That's why I use Firefox. Is Chrome really that faster? PDF Converter
