Fonts rendering harshly
For some reason, embedded fonts through Google Fonts render roughly on certain webpages. I've checked that my Windows font smoothing is on. See screenshot; I'm baffled. It's a brand new Windows 8 install with brand new Chrome install.
Do you think I'm doing something wrong with CSS? This is my first time using Google Fonts link ref'ed.
Here's an image of what it looks like on Win 8 Chrome:

Welcome to DevShed Forums, micaltena.
Chrome does not use Windows font smoothing; it has its own built-in font renderer. The text looks the same in Chrome on Win7 here. I've seen worse font rendering when using @font-face in Chrome.
As far as I know, the only solution is to use a different font.

Thanks for the welcome, and for the font tip!
What do other designers do? Just avoid Google Fonts or are there better, smoother fonts for Chrome Win 7 out there?
