Like DominicNikon said, PNG doesn't show, but here are a few obvious solutions to try (you never know!):

 

1. Press Ctrl and Plus on your keyboard repeatedly and see if that helps your problem. Go to the topbar three dots/hamburger in the top right corner and click the Plus on the side of the Zoom section.

 

2. Reset chrome settings by going to settings > show advanced settings > scroll all the way down > reset settings, then restart the browser.

 

3. Restart your computer.

 

If not that, I don't know what the problem is, you'll have to provide more info.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Samson

Cleartype on?

Cleartype shouldn't be a problem, that's just fancy anti-aliasing, shouldn't case any problems with thin and unreadable text.

 

As a troubleshooting step, are you sure that you just don't have the proper fonts installed or the problem is with the website? Try with another browser like Edge or Firefox.

 

Hope this helps,

Aight, found a possible direct solution on this reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/chrome/comments/307lqc/help_some_fonts_are_displaying_weirdly_very_thin/

 

tl;dr: the problem could be caused by a Chrome flag called "DirectWrite" that causes similar rendering of thin fonts (https://gyazo.com/6a0c2fe277d9ddba528c91d8bac640a1). You can disable it by going to chrome://flags and enabling the "Disable DirectWrite" option (https://i.stack.imgur.com/MLL1S.png).

 

There are lots more relevant links just by googling "Thin Fonts Chrome" so if this doesn't work try reading through some other existing forum posts and articles.

 

Hope this helps,

That flag hasn't existed for a long time. The only thing you can control regarding font now is anti-aliasing.

Oh. Thanks for telling me, I was just skimming through some Google results, sorry for the false info.
