Quick fix: New version of Google Chrome makes SharePoint look ugly

By Stefan Feenstra   /     Sep 18, 2014  /     SharePoint 2013  /  

Google released a new version of Google Chrome (version 37). This version makes SharePoint look ugly. It adds at some pages extra white space between links. And some text is now bold.
They changed the font rendering engine of Google Chrome in version 37 from GDI to DirectWrite. A temporary fix to change it back to GDI can be achieved with the following steps:

Step 1: Browse to chrome://flags

Step 2: Enable the “Disable DirectWrite” feature


Step 3: Restart browser and now everything should be normal again


It’s not a permanent solution. But maybe Google will fix this in the meantime.
