I've noticed that bold text looks a bit funny for me, and tested the site on Safari, and there it looks OK, so it's a Chrome-only issue (could be an OSX-Chrome-only AFAIK). I'm running Mavericks with all latest updates.

Haven't encountered this on any other sites, so I'm suspecting a problem with the webfonts.

Screenshots from this page below.

  • Could that be a font issue in terms of different fonts used? First it reminds me a little of the problems Flow had with the Roboto font, and second it looks like the Chrome example is minimally wider than the Safari one. – Izzy Jan 27 '14 at 9:53
  • I tried changing the fonts one by one, and the problem seems to be 'DroidSansRegular', which is used by both browsers. There's also a MIME type mismatch when loading the webfont: Resource interpreted as Font but transferred with MIME type font/x-woff: "http://cdn.sstatic.net/android/img/droidsans-webfont.woff". – onik Jan 27 '14 at 10:13

    It looks a little less funky in Chrome on Windows, but there's still a little problem. Maybe it's chrome that don't like this MIME type, since the official MIME type for WOFF fonts is application/font-woff – Matthieu Harlé Jan 27 '14 at 10:58
