thurrott.com font needs to be changed because of a Chrome issue

9

There is an issue with the way Chrome for Android renders text (Chrome for Android is the most popular browser on earth according to netmarketshare) and because the majority of Chrome for Android users do not have retina class displays, the font on thurrott.com should be changed so it doesn’t look so blurry for so many people. Here’s the chrome bug https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=686059

    Simple answer - stop using Chrome! :-)

    Looks great in Edge. Agree with WP7 Mango!

    So it's a problem with chrome, not this site.

    Changing the font would not change the issue with Chrome forcing sub-pixel rendering on sub-par devices. You would just continue to be staring at blurry text in a different font.

    It's a little blurry but is it really that bad? Anyway, the font being used is here is Open Sans, a font that is widely used on the web, and is owned by Google and was used widely by Google themselves before they switched to Product Sans.
