Twitter is still extremely sluggish to use and as for the cleartype issue it has been fixed but the font is wayy too bold now (if you compare to Chrome 14 or 15 you can see it clearly).

WinXP SP3.

Kick95 is right, --new-tab-page is now just a blank white page on winxp home, though there's still html and stuff in there.

Mr. Govindan,

There is still the ClearType/font antialiasing issue. I can't use after version than 16.0.891. Because rendered-texts makes it difficult to reading and hurts my eyes. Could you fix it, please? if this is a new feature, can be optional (in options menu or command-line).

16.0.891

I have same problem like "ilkertezcan " (Win XP SP3). Blurry fonts.

Fonts looks blurry, doesn't respect the windows cleartype settings. If this is intentional, please add an option to disable this "feature". The previous version is OK.

With new canary (16.0.900.0), cleartype has been disabled. Twitter is still sluggish.

Font rendering issue where large portions of text do not show up. Opening a new tab or browser instance and browsing to same page will sometimes fix the issue.

I like the way the + button for new tab is hidden and the way the + sign appears on hovering the mouse on top of it. It's elegant, clean, I like it :)

But I am still having trouble accessing twitter.com; it still has scrolling issues. I hate having to switch the browser just to access that one site.

Thanks!

Possible Twitter.com replacement for monitoring tweets until Chrome is fixed.
