Brand new XP install, fonts are showing up bolded and crappy looking on every website in Chrome. Example (IE/Chrome):

Brand new XP install = font smoothing disabled, most likely. Check your display properties and turn on ClearType. –  Marc B Apr 13 '12 at 19:35
    
I had font smoothing enabled, just hadn't turned on ClearType. Looks better now. I see people are voting for this question to be closed, if someone wants to move it and Marc if you want to post your suggestion as an answer I'll accept it. –  Terry Apr 13 '12 at 19:58
