  Chrome Blurry Text 
 Date Written

Hey guys,

What's wrong with Chrome?, I woke up and decided to do little browsing and noticed the text is all blur. I tried restarting the computer, updated Chrome but still the same problem.

Internet explorer works fine, so I believe something to do with Chrome. Any suggestions?

Hmmm. Curious. I use Chrome as my main browser on my PC, and as far as I can see, it's fine at the moment; any chance of a screenshot to demonstrate?

At this point, the only things I can suggest are:

1. Try altering the zoom level, which could be having an issue with your GPU/Resolution combo

2. Turn off any themes and plug-ins you have installed; one or more of those could have updated in the background recently and messed things up.

Hey thanks for the reply. I tried changing zoom levels, didn't help. Tried resetting the browser settings too.

As you can look in the screenshots, IE is lot sharper.


Internet Explorer:

Thanks for your help.

Perhaps there was an update or introduction of a "Clear Type" equivalent?

Does the blurriness apply to images as well as text? If not, then I'd suspect some font tinkering in the Chrome OS or the browser.

IMO, Clear Type actually makes fonts look a lot worse on some displays and some resolutions. That's probably why Microsoft introduced the Clear Type tuner in (I think) Win7.

Perhaps Chrome has something similar to that tuner.
