I'm working on a website currently that uses google's web font "Open Sans", but everywhere the font is rendered wrong. I looked at Dropbox.com and it also has the same problem (they use Open Sans as well). It looks like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fh1eyb2oiysop5k/crap.png

When I view the site in firefox, it looks normal. When I copy the text and paste in a text file, the actual text that supposed to be there IS there.

I've been following the issue at http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=108645

It's a bug! Chrome has anti-aliasing issues with many of Google's own web fonts.

You'll gain a better visual in Chrome using embedded fonts.
