Stable Channel Update

The Chrome team is delighted to announce the promotion of Chrome 37 to the stable channel for Windows, Mac and Linux. Chrome 37.0.2062.94 contains a number of fixes and improvements, including:

 - DirectWrite support on Windows for improved font rendering
 - A number of new apps/extension APIs
 - Lots of under the hood changes for stability and performance

A full list of changes is available in the log.

how about x64 to the stable ?

沈啸 said...

i'm wandering too

3nVade said...

yeah where is the 64 bit version ?

Julian Xhokaxhiu said...

Still no 64 bit version for Windows...

Paweł Solorz said...

when Chrome reached x64 stable channel ??? 38 or later 37 cycle ???

Unknown said...

Chrome 37.0.2062.94 in Beta channel was 64-bit. Why not 64-bit in stable channel??

Michael said...

I see 64-bit stable builds just fine here: https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/?platform=win64

3nVade said...

Michael
is this the stable version ?

Yep, it's the stable version. But it has a messed up version string.

Version 37.0.2062.94 unknown-m (64-bit)

Unknown?!?

3nVade said...

well i hope its really "stable" -_-

Boo Berry said...

So far, so good here. When 37.0.2062.94 64-bit was in beta it was stable as a rock too! :D

3nVade said...

im glad to hear that :)

Sameh said...

Wow. Now Chrome has same issue that forced me to leave Firefox just like thousands of people.

My whole browser is zoomed in and I can't do anything about it. This is because I have to set my laptop display to 125% to look perfect otherwise it will look very small and blurry. Every other software I have looks perfect with the current settings but Firefox and now Chrome!

How can I revert back my Chrome version to the last one?

Mariusz Różycki said...

@Sameh: yes, exactly that! What the hell? How do I change it back?

I can't stand it. It's all huge and some fonts are just terribly blurry. It's even worse, given that I have an external display with lower DPI, so when I move my browser window there, it's literally enormous!

Pavel Nosov said...

Right-click the Chrome shortcut and then click Properties. On the Compatibility tab, select Disable Display Scaling On High DPI Settings, and then click OK. This causes the text in the application to appear clearer.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2900023

PS. By the way, how can I find the standalone 64-bit installer?

Sameh said...

@Mariusz: Join the others,

https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=395425

Sameh said...

@Pavel: That didn't work.

Alexander Kuzmin said...

Terrible update! Large fonts and all blurry.

Matthias Aurelius Jude Shapiro said...

The switch to 64bit is definitely stable -- I recall reading that it apparently, for unknown reasons, doubled the stability of the renderer.

Pavel Nosov said...

@Sameh: Maybe you have to click the "Change settings for all users" button in Compatibility tab and Disable display scaling on high DPI settings for all users.

Sameh said...

@Pavel: Thank you so much for trying to help but that didn't work either.

tim johnson said...

When I download on Win 7 I get the 32-bit version and 64-bit on Win 8. Is this what's suppose to happen?

Patric Buckenauer said...

terrible update. Same problem as Sameh. Websites look ugly now, my own website shows blurry and jagged header like it wer on 800x600 instead of 1920x1080. All is to big now. If i zoom out everything looks even more weird and broken. Please fix asap!

Will Harris said...

@Boo Berry - Chrome showing "unknown-m" is a known issue that is already fixed but just missed this initial release. It will be fixed in the next M37 release! You are definitely running Chrome Stable if your version begins with 37.

Mariusz Różycki said...

So someone on reddit came up with a solution to the DPI problem: adding this as start parameters works:

"****/chrome.exe" /high-dpi-support=1 /force-device-scale-factor=1

You have to restart the Chrome completely afterwards (including the app in the background) and it works.

Patric Buckenauer said...

For Sameh and others with the problem:
Temporary fix found here http://www.reddit.com/r/chrome/comments/2en8j0/just_got_chrome_37_its_resolution_is_really_low/ck16jbq
@Moderator its just adding parameters to the Chrome shortcut.

Alexander Kuzmin said...

@Patric Buckenauer after this fix font size on sites is smaller than before update. I hope we will not wait 6 weeks for fix...

Borislav Angelov said...

New version of Chrome 37 to the stable channel, does not work Windows Media Player plugin is not compatible with this version

What can be done in this case
Thank you

Allmighty146 said...

whats wrong with this update really dont know.... it has a mini - delay in every open or closed new tab and all engine about tabs are broken and the browser is slower than version 36 ..... cmon google whats happening???... btw i have 64 bit OS. fix this asap. ty

Mitch said...

This version seems much slower than the previous version.

ßłưε˅ỉžỉơƞş said...

Please add an option to disable the scaling of Google chrome with the operating system. Chrome now looks terrible and most people will have the same issue.

Raven said...

Just installed Google - Chrome Version 37.0.2062.94 and as always for me, it is rock solid

Goretsky said...

Hello,

Would it be possible to provide not just direct download links for the offline installers, but to use different filenames for the 32-bit and 64-bit versions, such as ChromeStandaloneSetup_x86.exe and ChromeStandaloneSetup_x64.exe?

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky

Jeff G said...

Need a link to the 64-bit offline installer. Your "standard" installation doesn't play nice behind firewalls.

Rendy said...

This version for some reason is changing the fonts on Facebook to Helvetica. Horrible.

James Overturf said...

Working great for me. Everything is clear as glass. Whether stable, time will tell.

Kkewl said...

Text scaling issue here as well - using the reddit fix atm but still...

Ross Gore said...

Same issue with Facebook (helvetica font) and also with Plenty of Fish forums. Too difficult to read.

Moo Scree said...

64-bit working great, now on Stable instead of Beta (now About shows "unknown-m" now -lol). Also -- THANK THE ALMIGHTY BROWSER GODS -- they finally removed that blasted warning message about using unpacked extensions!!!!!!!!!! Whew. Another note, even with a new install, 64-bit still gets put in the (x86) folder.

Ross Gore said...

Update: Helvetica issue for me was due to Helvetica-Ultracompressed font being installed and chosen first for these sites. For now, I have deleted the font, but would like to be able to reinstall it at some point down the road (since it was a purchase).

Vanp said...

I am not sure why there was a need to screw up the fonts and write "to improve font rendering". I think you don't test before delivering such shit. The new font system sucks big time. This move is more worse than the one when you added the fucked up Google Search bar to the New Tab. I am sure nothing will be done for the fonts and people will have adjust with what you think is an "improvement". I downgraded to v36 already.

André Prata said...

Could you fix the link to the standalone, single user installer for 64 bit? I think it's pointing to the 32 bit version (ignoring standalone=1)

Thanks

iron2000 said...

Somehow HTML5 Youtube videos look worse in this Stable update.

Blogger said...

Time to back Firefox.

Thank you chrome team you guys make me decide so easly. Thank you !

Guilherme Bugmann said...

Same problem here with sites that use Helvetica font (like facebook). Not rendering whell like é or ç.

tml3nr said...

Thanks Mariusz Różycki, adding:

"****/chrome.exe" /high-dpi-support=1 /force-device-scale-factor=1

Work fine on Chrome 37.0.2062.94

April Gunsallus said...

The latest release completely ruins my chrome experience. The fonts are too big and every webpage appears zoomed in, which changes the distribution of layout items--making the whole thing messy and unappealing. It's really bringing me down! I can't stand it. I'm probably going to have to go back to firefox if this rendering issue is not fixed soon.

Matteo said...

If you don't like the new chrome fonts rendering, write "chrome://flags" in the address bar, press enter and then enable "disable direct write", restart chrome and have a nice day :)

April Gunsallus said...

I tried the chrome://flags setting change, but it did not work. Thank you for trying! It would be great if a simple fix like what you suggested would work.

shphoenix said...

Chrome - wtf!! bring back GDI renderer - or at least give us an option to choose. the chrome:flags disable directwrite is not working well. The workaround to start chrome with DPI flag is unacceptable. the directwrite concept is very very flawed - which is why I never use IE11 - makes look everything blurry. Why mess with something that works well. Bring back GDI and get rid of nasty Directwrite

reloadro said...

wtf did you do ??? the fonts looks like shit , really really small and distorted
wtf is this???

Tim Davis said...

Now if I could just find a download for a 64-bit stable version of the standalone/offline installer :-)

reloadro said...

Please i beg you from the bottom of my heart it hurts my eyes , how can i upgrade to the previous version? Chrome had the best font rendering out of all the other browsers

László Stadler said...

Ok, this font issue is really bad. I have it on a lot of pages (Gmail, Facebook, etc). If it stays like this I will stop using Chrome. And then Google would also kill Android for me as the whole infrastructure works best if you use Chrome everywhere...

Also, we were supposed to get the 64bit version installed automatically, weren't we?

Peter Kay said...

Facebook fonts on chrome 37 browser are royally messed up. You have to disable the direct write feature for now. I explain here: http://goo.gl/aOiU23 go to chrome://flags/ and “Enable” the “Disable DirectWrite"

ryan said...

Chrome 37 on 64-bit Linux is unbelievably slow. Switching tabs takes up 100% of a CPU core and takes 5-15 seconds on a quad-core i7 machine with 8GB of RAM.

Chrome v36 was much, much faster. What gives?

John said...

chrome 37 is very slow...tab switching and closing chrome is slow and laggy as hell?wtf happened?

Eolas: said...

My display DPI is set at 150% in Windows 8. This version of Chrome ignores "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". Now the browser chrome is 150% but it should be 100%. What's the fix?

Alfred Kwan said...

37 is very sluggish with lots of tabs opened (version 36 handled this just fine). I found one of the chrome.exe constantly hogs 25-35% of one CPU time.

Γιαννης said...

Same here. Being using Chrome since it was "born" now I am thinking of migrating because of the enormous time it takes (nearly 5 secs) to switch between tabs. Was an autoupdating 32-bit configured with sync. It autoupdated to 37 and got enormously laggy. uninstalled it and installed "stable" (not) 64-bit, stable at start. I set up sync, Chrome opens to a frozen new tab window and won't respond, will unload only if I kill it. Please fix this.

Γιαννης said...

Update-I've been researching the issue since yesterday when autoupdate caused it. It seems some problem with the bookmarks engine can cause the creation of multiple entries for the same bookmark - I found 100's of entries of the very same bookmark. THIS is what causes the enormous lag when switching between tags, your browser wants to display your bookmarks in a proper order and it takes a lot of time for the engine to sort them properly.

my 2 cents.

Mitch said...

I moved from the 32 bit stable version to the 64 bit . Much faster and more stable!

Make the switch if you dont like the new 32 bit version, too slow.

Mark Robertson said...

Words With Friends Facebook app won't load properly on Facebook. I'm using 64-Bit Chrome (stable) on my Windows 8.1 desktop. The game loads and works fine on my Windows 7 laptop using the 32-bit version of Chrome.

When I try to run it using 64-bit version of Chrome, the Facebook game app partially displays and somewhat locks up... Then I always get a 'Page(s) Unresponsive' message after a short delay.

Sure hope this my comment gets read by Google Chrome team so that they can fix it.

Thanks.

Janeor said...

Contrary to what many think, this version is not 64-Bit. Just open the process manager of Windows and look for processes related to Google Chrome. All show: chrome.exe * 32

cripple99 said...

@Janeor, You have to manually install the x64 version. I confirm that after installing from https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/?platform=win64
The process manager does NOT show a 32 bit process. It is most definitely 64 bit.

Wopa Jatu said...

Thx to the man with greece word name

i delete all my 700 bookmarks and tab switching work fast again.

sorry for my english.

crimsoncarnage said...

Confirmed, deleting most of the bookmarks for Google Chrome 37 (x64) on Windows 8 improves the browser's speed. Please fix this problem Google.

MRF said...

My text/fonts look weird and blurry after the update

Nikki Lee Jose said...

My chrome started to lag at switching tabs, eats up 25% or I'm assuming 1 core off the quad core cpu. Tried reinstalling it, but after I sync same thing happens.

I tried my portable chrome and it works fine since it doesn't auto update itself. So I'm pretty sure its with the update.

Can you at least provide an option to turn off auto update instead.

Thanks

Windows Media Player HTML5 Extension for Chrome
The Windows Media Player HTML5 Extension for Chrome is an extension that enables Chrome users to play H.264-encoded videos (aka MP4) on HTML5 pages by using the built-in capabilities found in Windows 7.

Important Notes:
If you are running Windows 8, the extension will NOT work. We recommend that you download Internet Explorer instead. IE is a modern, standards compliant browser that remains compatible with older media technologies.

Big regression on windows 2012 R2 RDS: no printing - just eternal spooling.
https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=408184

Lester De Meyer said...

My God, what is happening!
Something is VERY, VERY wrong with the performance in HTML5 since the update to 37. Animations are laggy, slow, damn weird!

I tested both versions, 32bit & 64bit. (on 2 quadcore-machines)
I have no more extensions installed. I have reinstalled both versions already 20 times. This is driving me nuts since the update.

Even tha IE11 is much (yes much?!) better in performance. Firefox too.

Suddenly all other earlier versions are gone on other sites. I can't seem to go back to 36.

This can't be happening. My fav browser is the worst now... I don't wan't to switch.
Please let this be fixed or give us the chance to go back to 36.

Kind regards,
Lester De Meyer.

Mark Robertson said...

When I click on Google's Chrome download for 64-bit, it doesn't specify Windows 8.1 compatibility, just Windows 8/7.

I tried it anyways and it worked but I'm uncertain of its overall compatibility since it doesn't specifically specify.

Also, I noted, before reverting back to the 32-bit version until next month's update, that the 64-bit version had been "37.0.2062.94 unknown-m" or something like that. Why the unknown?

Kiril Varbanov said...

Wow, the new font rendering makes half of the web I visit totally unusable!
The fonts are all messed up! Please, give us a way to disable that.

John Eyðstein Brockie said...

This should NOT have been released as stable. It is insanely sluggish: starting up, working with tabs, dragging window between monitors.
Previous versions worked much better.

Kim Harrington said...

Ever since Chrome updated yesterday, it has been an absolute mess. Huge font size, random bolding of text, weird spacing making some words unreadable, and even "dancing" text giving me headaches. I tried adjusting zoom and dpi. I tried disabling directwrite. Nothing is working. PLEASE HELP. I'm on Windows Vista. So many people I know have this problem right now. Is there any way to revert to 36? I don't want to have to switch to Firefox, but I can't work like this.

Peter Kay said...

The workaround is to disable DirectWrite. Here's how: http://goo.gl/aOiU23

shphoenix said...

Google should be ashamed of this update. Not only the implementation of directwrite is disasterous - there are huge issues with dpi scaling as well. Pull this down...

workaround so far
1. if you are using smaller (default) fonts with auto scale on OS level - i.e. you are at normal/100% DPI. and you have blurry fonts --> the issue is directwrite rendering
==> chrome:flags turning directwrite off is sufficient
2. if you are using higher dpi (125% or more) - and you have abnormal zoom or large scaling issues - then the issue is related to DPI scaling
==> change Chrome start link by enabling high dpi and dpi scaling to 1.
also change the registry keys - regedit - look for entries such as
... Chrome.exe" -- %1
and change them to
...Chrome.exe" /high-dpi-support=1 /force-device-scale-factor=1

Enhas said...

Installed the x64 version today. Later in the day, it "upgraded" to the 32-bit one. I had to uninstall Chrome and re-install the x64 version to get it back.

Hope this doesn't happen again.

Alter Ego said...

Version 37 is Slooooowww, very noticeable latency when opening new tabs, when searching, and overall sluggish!

KiTA said...

Got this update a few hours ago, I'm fairly regular with my Chrome updates so I think it was an incrimental - so this issue is with this new version.

It's too darned slow.

It's only when I open or close a tab. There's a noticeable pause of a second or two, even if there's nothing on the tab. This also occurs when resizing the window, Chrome will pause, resize the window but not re-render everything (leaving parts of the window black), then after the same pause, bam, it will refresh.

Running Win8.1 here with Classic Shell installed, on a SSD and SSHD setup.

(Edit: I just realized Issue 395425 might be related to this. Apparently after 0-25 seconds or so their blurryness kinda clears up, whereas instead I'm just getting long pauses instead.)

Dennis said...

The display size of almost all websites just went crazy. With this update Facebook and co. just look as crappy as with using Firefox. I really love chrome and the google services but I might actually switch back to ff if this doesn't get fixed (or at least a workaround is provided), 'cause at least ff let's me zoom to ~80% (equivalent to chromes default size before the update) without blurring the fonts.

I would illustrate the problem with FB-screens but I don't have an old one, so here's an example displaying a page from my university.
Before updating: http://puu.sh/bcAmp/71a6033730.png (2014-08-05)
After updating: http://puu.sh/bcAoi/876632bde1.png (2014-08-29)

As you can see the problem isn't related to the Website but the whole browser. I already tried disabling DirectWrite and startet chrome through a new link using the parameters shphoenix provided.

I'm using Chrome 37.0.2062.102 m on Winodws 7 Professional SP 1 with 2 Monitors 1920x1080 each. Zooming is set to default.

Dennis said...

I have to correct myself, the workaround from shphoenix works - I forgot to close the chrome-autostart / edit the registry setting for that

Alfred Kwan said...

Good news everyone! There is an update for 37 "37.0.2062.102 unknown-m (64-bit)". Chrome is no longer sluggish with lots of tabs opened.

So can anyone from the Chromium team comment on what was the regression about in the initial 37 release?

ppauler said...

With this Update Facebook just look as crappy as with using Firefox.
I switch back to FireFox if this doesn't get fixed (or at least a workaround is provided).

Lester De Meyer said...

Hi people,

Chrome became EXTREMELY slow in HTML5 animation performance. It used to be the fastest in HTML5 (and Flash) before the update to 37.
Framerates are very low suddenly, even on quick PC’s.

I develop portfolio-sites in both environments and I experience Chrome as "broken" now.
I tried this "little" tester for performance in HTML5 animations;
http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Performance/Fireflies/Default.html
I have tested this on several browsers on 2 different computers.
See here: http://postimg.org/image/nftxgmjjp/

As you can see (on the laptop) the difference between IE and Chrome is already there.
I couldn't test it with version 36 anymore, but Chrome still was faster than IE and Firefox at that time.

On the brand new desktop PC there are 2 browsers that fail, Safari and Chrome 37. (32 and 64 bit)
This small test gave me almost 100% on Chrome 36, IE and Opera. Animations smooth as butter!

The contrast between version Chrome 36 and 37 on the desktop is quite big, don't you think?
Animations, even little ones are a disaster now on Chrome, even on this (relative) fast PC.

This test didn’t work with Firefox, but I notice it is as fast (and has no problems) as IE and Opera with animations.
I’m sure on the quick PC the result would be as high as 60 FPS.

I realize this small test isn't the most reliable, but you can see the difference very well.
The problem with Chrome 37 is very noticable in other test too.
Something very weird is going on now with Chrome and I really hope it can/will be fixed!

Kind regards,
Lester.

Colleen Casey said...

I just switched channels from, beta to stable, did an 'update'..says 'I'm up to date'..yet after the mandatory power wash, my Chromebook reverted back to the 'very insecure' platform, without any of the 50 security updates. I wonder if my device will ever update w/ the much needed security updates, because my device has be 'messed up' since the moment I turned it on out of the box months ago. I know there is some kind of either network attacker my ISP refuses to help me with despite the repeated requests and extra payments for tech support OR my device is 'being managed' by some external source somehow (no need to go into detail here). This has been a nightmare...although I never allow anything to truly 'get to me'...I like the CB, I just wish 'whoever' is behind the scenes will actually do something about the severe problems. I'm very limited to what I can do, because I am not going to input any personal info, cc or banking info into this thing until I am 200% certain something is done. Personally, I truly do not putting out negativity in any way, but it kind of makes Google and my ISP (AT&T) look really awful. I'm an eternal optimist, and 'possibly' there is a 'good' reason for all this. :) can't wait for my REAL UPDATE!!! OneLove

Charlie Williams said...

It seems i'm not the only one having problems with the font on facebook looking bit blurry, i thought i might of changed a setting or something, i tried all sort to try and fix it. but nothing seems to b working till i come across all theses post and find out it's not my fault and other people are having the same problems. If someone finds out how to fix the blurry text please let me know. I've always used Chrome, but it's starting to hurt my eyes now. I'm also getting th slight delay when opening tabs and also if i minimize Chrome and then click to go back to it doesn't open properly leaves just a tab up at the top of the screen and i can't do nothing apart from close and open again which is kinda of annoying, hope they will fix these issues.

KiTA said...

I just wanted to post a little update -- I don't know if I'm permanently fixed, but it seems to be working better now.

What I did was export my bookmarks to an HTML file, then uninstall chrome + remove all browsing data. I then reinstalled the 32 bit version that's on the site right now.

When doing so, I chose what to sync and did not sync bookmarks.

The thing crashed repeatedly (5-6 tries) when attempting to load my bookmarks, so I opened the bookmarks HTML file manually and re-bookmarked the important ones. Things remained snappy. I then tried importing my bookmarks file again, and it did so in a matter of seconds, no crash.

Everything seems to be back to normal now. Not sure if 2062.102 m is a different version and I just didn't see an update, or what, but the problem seems related to bookmarks somehow. Maybe?

I have a large number of non-latin characters in my bookmark file (Unicode / Shift JIS -- Japanese) so that might be it? Not sure.

Anyway, if you're having issues with new tabs taking a second or 10 to open/close, random crashes and lag when moving windows, try uninstalling + deleting data and fiddling with the bookmarks. Might help.

gab said...

have recently updated to Version 37.0.2062.102 m and it's much slower than version 36.

as Lester pointed out, http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Performance/Fireflies/Default.html gives a dreadful experience, I am down to like 10FPS.

and also, the "feel" of opening the browser is much slower, etc, even opening web pages and general browsing.

this seems to be a regular trend with the recent updates, can we get it right for once?

thanks

haki said...

All fonts got messed up after the update - Including google's precious Roboto...

Armie HP said...

The fonts are too big. Graphics, letters and colors are blurry -- making it hard to read. Just right after reading comments here, I got dizzy and my head aches terribly. Can we sue google chrome if it cause us health issues?

Alver said...

Please, fix font rendering. Chrome 37, Win7 SP1, 32bit.

Lester De Meyer said...

It would be nice to hear some feedback from someone @ Google about these problems.
Do you guys confirm something is wrong with the performance of Chrome 37?
Are you guys trying to fix it? Something?

It's a pity, I have been promoting this browser a long time now.
The new Chrome 37 on 3 desktops and 1 laptop here is a total disaster now. :(
How can this even be possible, ya had the BEST browser around.
I really hope this gets fixed quick.

Kind regards,
Lester.

April Gunsallus said...

I'm with Lester! I really love Chrome and I want it back. Ever since the 37 release I have been getting by on Firefox, but I keep checking back to this channel to see if these problems have been fixed. It is disconcerting that Google may not have even *acknowledged* that the problems are real. I would feel so much better if I knew, for sure, that they were working on it. I've never felt so passionate about a browser before! I ♥ chrome.

On Linux Mint 17 x64 (with 64bit version of Chrome), the spell-checker goes goofy. When I'm typing, it will work correctly for some of the time, then the red line under typos will be offset a few characters (still the correct length, though). If I right-click and choose a correction, it only corrects the underlined text , and because the red line is often offset, this creates small but incredibly annoying issues.

and the update hasn't done anything to address the horrible font treatment on facebook. how could they miss testing the Internet's #1 app?

Version 37.0.2062.103 m did not change anything for me. Bring back the good Chrome please. :)

Kind regards,
Lester.

FIXED! The 37.0.2062.103 m update shrank the address bar font and Chrome looks "normal" again!

Just updated to 37.0.2062.103 and my chrome window gets warped when minimized/maximized

cwilliams said...

Something's wrong with my font size. I use the OS's DPI increase whatever, to about 110%. It's very noticeable on facebook.

I'm running:

Version 37.0.2062.103 m

On Windows 7 64 bit

Chrome 37 on Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit is unbelievably laggy. There seems to be a 1 to 2 second delay when opening or transitioning between tabs. Please fix and address this issue asap.

I too am having issues with Google chrome over the last few days. Difficulty opening home page and going from 1 bookmarked page to another very slow. So much that you wonder if page is going to open at all. Please fix because I have to use ie at moment but really prefer google

Ever since the new update, i also face some issues. the opening and closing of a new tab lags and have a long delay time. Even just the switching of the different tabs also lags and have this delay time.

v 37.0.3062.94 on Mavericks is just constantly freezing on me. It'll just stop working randomly & I won't be able to scroll or do anything unless I force close & open it again, losing all my open tabs in the process. Happens averagely about once an hour. Getting by using Firefox right now. Hope there'll be a fix for it soon as I miss Chrome!

Nearly all websites look awful now, including Google's own Gmail. Fonts are smaller, look modified, condensed. Underlined text is difficult to read, especially with small fonts - there is no space between the line and the letters. Bold text is far too bold and gets blurry. Space between lines is too narrow. How can I revert back to version 36?
