When I first installed Google Chrome
on my Lenovo IdeaPad 100S
I was surprised with how bad some web pages looked. Specifically - the text in certain web sites was the problem, it came up all pixelated and looked quite ugly.
I knew the laptop screen wasn't the best and compared to my Mac's Retina
display it's basically a stone age monitor, but I still wouldn't accept the terrible text rendering in Chrome
. After a bit of research it turned out that by turning off text antialiasing
it was possible to improve text display quality.
To disable antialiasing, in Chrome
, navigate to chrome://flags
. Then look for 'LCD text anti-aliasing'
and set it to Disabled
Making this change on my 100S
made a huge difference.
