    So...I just noticed fonts are now smooth in Google Chrome. I think I'm going to go pass out now...

    Really? Love it! As a designer, I had seeing jagged choppy fonts in Chrome while Firefox and other browsers looks good.

    It's improved since that patch in June or July what not, but some fonts still aren't quite as "pretty" in chrome :D

    Wonderful news. I'll have to test it to see how well it works now...

    It's much better than before but not quite perfect from what I've seen

    They look much worse for me and I'm not sure why.

    Still doesn't render as nicely as it does in firefox.

    Still needs work, but better than what it was before IMO.

    One thing I have been basing my judgement on is Font Awesome. And I absolutely agreed with everyone here that really it doesn't look great and still a long way off what it needs to be.

    However, Font Awesome HAS seen a massive improvement but only if you upgrade to FA 4.2.0:

    FA 4.1.0 Chrome 37:

    FA 4.2.0 Chrome 37:

    Update your FA URLs to:
    <link href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.2.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
