In the latest stable version, G.Chrome has done some improvements for the font rendering. They think it looks better ow, but I think it is not. It is blurry and is not readable.http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/2014/08/stable-channel-update_26.html
The only benefit is that FontAwesome looks awesome now.
What about you?
I have noticed this on some fonts. It looks as if someone applied a drop shadow on the text. At first I thought its my eyes, now I know why, thanks for pointing it out. Am on chrome for mac.
