Problem with Fonts in New Version of Chrome? Here's the fix

Here's a short post on how to fix a new problem. If you have downloaded the new Chrome browser, Version 37.0.2062.103, you may find that many of your pages are basically unreadable. It seems to convert many pages (including gmail into a narrow sans serif font.

Here's the fix. Type into your browser address bar:
chrome://flags/ 
On the resulting page, click the link to Disable under Disable DirectWrite Windows
This will disable the use of the new experimental DirectWrite font rendering system.

A box will appear at the bottom of your browser saying : 
Your changes will take effect the next time you relaunch Google Chrome.
Click the box to Relaunch Chrome that will appear underneath - and voila. Your fonts are back to normal.
