Windows 7: Fonts In Chrome For Windows Will Look Better Soon

Fonts In Chrome For Windows Will Look Better Soon

Google released the latest beta version of its Chrome browser today, and if you’re a Windows user on a machine that runs at least Vista, fonts will now look better on your screen. That’s because the Chrome 37 Beta now supports Microsoft’s DirectWrite API, a technology that improves the way fonts look on modern screens.

For the longest time, Google didn’t support this and instead used Windows‘ Graphics Device interface — which is based on technology from the mid-80s, when LED screens were still far off and computers were much slower.

Changing Chrome's fonts?
Hi, I'm using Google Chrome on Windows 7, and I don't like its default fonts. Is there a way to force Chrome to use fonts other than those of the website or the operating system? I'd like to use Verdana or Helvetica. Thanks in advance.
