The latest versions of the Google Chrome browser (e.g. 34 stable, 35 beta) come with a new font rendering feature which uses the DirectWrite engine instead of the old GDI engine. This means that fonts in your Google Chrome will look smoother than before. DirectWrite takes advantage of advances in OpenType font technology and ClearType font subpixel rendering technology to enable high quality typography in Windows applications. At this moment, you can enable DirectWrite font rendering in Google Chrome using the experimental 'flags' because this feature is still in testing.
