Fonts in chrome

For a long time, when reading the forum topics, the fonts were rendering oddly in Chrome on Windows 7/8. You could see that the two humps of the letter "m" were different widths, for example. This was fixed sometime in the last week or two. Did you guys (The Verge) change something on your end, or was it a Chrome update? My understanding is it has to do with Skia and DirectWrite subpixel rendering.
