CJK font rendering of Google Chrome

Thursday, September 4. 2008

It seems to me that there is some problem (or a bug) with Google Chrome's font rendering engine.

Today when I test it with the KangXi Radicals page of Alan Wood's Unicode Resources, horizontal stroke is missing in some of the characters.

Horizontal stroke is missing in some of the CJK characters on Google Chrome

When I enlarge the font size the problem still there, happening on different characters.

I keep on change the font size larger until no missing stroke, guess how large the fonts need to be...



Enlarge one level:

stroke still missing on Google Chrome when enlarged the font size

Enlarger once more, some stroke still missing:

Enlarge one more, finially no missing stroke, but the font size seems too large for a normal webpage:

It should be related to the font rendering engine of Google Chrome. Since there is no missing stroke when I use FireFox 3.0.1 on the same machine all font size:
