The latest version (37) of Google Chrome uses DirectWrite for font rendering on Windows PCs. DirectWrite is a DirectX API made for the purpose of high-quality, resolution-independent text rendering. On paper it sounds great, but some people might not like the new fonts appearance (blurry text on some websites). Here we'll show you how to disable DirectWrite.

1. Navigate to "chrome://flags" using the address bar.
2. Locate "Disable DirectWrite" and press on the "Enable" button just beneath it.
3. Close and relaunch Google Chrome.

Even better would be a guide on how to disable Google Chrome as a whole.
