Recently, LCD font smoothing stopped working on Chrome; it happened no more than two weeks ago. Seeing that I use Chrome as my default browser, this issue is very annoying, as I prefer the look of "smooth" font.

Do you have any idea what would be causing this? I've tested it in Safari, and the text looks perfect.

I'm running the follow version: 18.0.1025.142

I like it better without the smoothing, it that just me? – Rob Apr 5 '12 at 16:18
@brad-fiedel How about now? Still have the problem? – evan.bovie May 22 '12 at 1:20
@emb1995 I originally posted this on MacRumors, and I'm still having this problem. – Josh Foskett Jun 17 '12 at 22:07
