    Sorry for the thread necro, but I have just installed the latest Chrome Canary build and it has made all the text crisp and clear

    Might be worth a look at that

    Thanks for suggesting Chrome Canary Build. Text looks so much better now. Text looks as crisp as Internet Explorer now.
    Here's the link if anyone wants to give it a try.

    Windows Registry editing fixed the font thickness issue for me completely,
    we can tune the font thicknes/darkness by calibrating FONTSMOOTHINGGAMMA value to
    between 150 and 190 hexadecimal( 336 to 400 decimal )

    - START -> RUN -> REGEDIT
    - search for FONTSMOOTHINGGAMMA by keying "Ctrl F"
    ( will automatically take us to CurrentUser\ControlPanel\Desktop path)
    - right-click mouse on FONTSMOOTHINGGAMMA on the rightside, Modify... enter any
    thing between 150 and 190 hexadecimal.
    (the Lower the value, the thicker the fonts.)
    - close the REGEDIT tool
    - LOGOFF and then LOGON

    Now all the fonts are very thick & very dark in Chrome Browser.

    But we must make sure that ClearType smoothing is enabled in Windows
    ( controlPanel -> personalization -> appearance ->
    -> Effects -> ClearType smooth check (ticked box) )

    OR alternately in RegEdit ...

    FONTSMOOTHING = 2 FONTSMOOTHINGTYPE = 2 (in the Registry)
    FONTSMOOTHINGORIENTATION = 1 for LCD-screen, 0 for CRT-screen

    Does Canary fix the Chrome battery usage issues as well? It would be nice to be able to use Chrome again on an SP.

    I think he's referring to that Chrome timing or something bug that resulted in higher power consumption on a Windows PC, especially on battery-powered ones.
    It got a bunch of press a while back,

    I think it was since fixed, but I don't know.
