Font smoothing doesn't work properly on 16.0.889.0
Using Windows 7 with Cleartype enabled. Before the update to this version (some build of 15) fonts looked fine (smoothed properly). Now, in 16.x, ClearType doesn't always apply itself to text.
For example, the submission box I am using to type this message out looks perfectly, but if I log in to Twitter.com all the messages in my feed are in non-antialiased Arial and generally look like crap. However, if I pass my mouse over a tweet so that the message is highlighted, the text seems to re-render with proper Cleartype.
(Is this even the right place to submit questions about dev channel releases?)2011-09-23
Typo. "Looks perfectly normal" is what I meant in the first sentence of the second paragraph.
Win 7 x64 SP1
Chrome 16.0.889.0 dev-m (Build 102207)
ClearType enabled (and adjusted today but that did not change anything)
In other words, they know about the problem and are trying to work out how to fix it. I guess I'll just put up with it on the PC that has the dev release, and be happy that I have the beta channel selected on my other computers.
Google Chrome version : 16.0.891.0 dev-m (Windows 7 64bit)
