I'm getting a really weird distortion of some fonts in Chrome and I don't know why. The font looks messy and corrupted. Any ideas? The occurs on many sites, but this screenshot is from Youtube.

Additional info: This does not occur on Firefox and IE, and I'm on Windows 7. – Kayle Oct 1 '11 at 1:56

Solved... I had EZGDI installed to improve font rendering in windows. I uninstalled it and all my fonts look normal now. (aside from being ugly aliased windows rendering again... better than messed up)

You can exclude chrome.exe in the ezgdi.ini file. This is my setup. I just added all of the software that don't play well with EzGDI.
