Chrome 37 adds support for DirectWrite, Thus Font Rendering will be better (For Windows Users)

– Finally, Chrome 37 has been released and I think the good think about the release is that they’ve added support for DirectWrite.
– According to Chromium blog,

Chrome 37 adds support for DirectWrite,
an API on Windows for clear, high-quality text rendering even on high
DPI displays. Before DirectWrite, Chrome used the Graphics Device
Interface (GDI) to render text. GDI dates back to the mid-80’s and
reflects the engineering tradeoffs of that time, particularly for
slower, lower-resolution machines.

– You can see in the above image that, How The Font rendering works with DirectWrite and without it.
– So now you can see the font prettier than before in Google Chrome if you’ve updated it to version 37.

– So here it’s. Comment your views on this change by Chrome team. Thanks.
