I put Chrome on my laptop and it is very slightly blurry. It's almost unnoticeable. But it still bothers me.

Is it my laptop, bad download, just the way it is, suck it up and quite complaining?

What is blurry, the text, pictures? Compared the same site, side-by-side with a different browser.
Have you ever run clear text?
clean your glasses?
Are you running your laptop in the native resolution of the screen?

Text is blurry
Have compared it to explorer, explorer looks fine when compared to chrome.
Don't wear glasses
I'm a bit of a dumbass. I don't know what 'run clear text' means exactly.
I assume my laptop is in native everything as I haven't changed anything.

Just went and did the run clear text steps and am in native res.

Still fuzzy. I did a search and it seems somewhat common with chrome.

Ok, found this, it works


"Right-click on the Google Chrome icon on the desktop and choose "Properties".
Select the "Compatibility" tab and check the "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" checkbox.
Apply the changes and click OK to close the properties dialog."

That was a mistype on my part, I meant to say clear type which can eliminate artifacting on LCD screens.

Windows Registry editing fixed the font thickness issue for me completely, we can tune the font thickness/darkness by calibrating FONTSMOOTHINGGAMMA value to between 150 and 190 hexadecimal( 336 to 400 decimal )

- START -> RUN -> REGEDIT
- search for FONTSMOOTHINGGAMMA by keying " Ctrl F " ( will automatically take us to CurrentUser\ControlPanel\Desktop path)
- double-click mouse on FONTSMOOTHINGGAMMA enter anything between 150 and 190 hexadecimal.(the Lower the value, the thicker the fonts.)
- close the REGEDIT tool
- LOGOFF and then LOGON

Now all the fonts are very thick & very dark in Chrome Browser.

But we must make sure that ClearType smoothing is enabled in Windows( controlPanel -> personalization -> appearance -> Effects -> ClearType smooth check [ ticked box ] )

OR alternately in RegEdit ...

FONTSMOOTHING=2
FONTSMOOTHINGTYPE=2
FONTSMOOTHINGORIENTATION=1 for LCD-screen, 0 for CRT-screen

But thats not how the text is SUPPOSED TO APPEAR!!!!

Some text is BOLD and some is regular..... Why would you want ALL TEXT to be bold?? (Very thick and very dark = BOLD)
