This has been a chronic issue with Chrome for ages now. One way fix it is to install one of the many chrome extensions that (kind of) fix the problem by replacing fonts on the go. It doesn't work on all sites though.

The only real "solution" is to delete the Helvetica Neue font from your system completely. In my case it's not an option as I use the font regularly in designs.

Come-on Google, fix this 1998-stile bug for once. It's annoying.

I have the exact same problem.  Some of the sites I visit display so poorly that I have to use Firefox to view them comfortably.  This issue needs to be a higher priority.

As a designer who has several clients that require Helvetica Neue for my work, uninstalling is not an option. My only solution is to stop using Chrome until they fix this issue unfortunately.
