    Interesting changes to Chrome 37 web browser Chrome 37 Launches with DirectWrite Support on Windows
    If you don't like the DirectWrite changes, you can disable DirectWrite in Chrome 37 web browsers by typing in browser chrome://flags/ and Enable the 'Disable DirectWrite' option.

    Also seems Google Chrome 64bit web browser reaches stable status

    Just updated to Chrome 37 with Win7 and seems bold fonts on this forum are a bit funky now heh

    might be related to Issue 395425 - chromium - Chrome suddenly appears zoomed in and blurry

    possibly fix
