Opera 28 tab font clarity?

  • I noticed after my Opera updated to 28.0.1750.48, the font appearance has become blurrier. I find it harder to read.

    I was able to take two screenshots from my laptop to compare version 27 with 28. You can see the text get blurrier (especially the "Themes" tab):

    Opera developers: Please give us the option to decide how our fonts should be displayed with an option in the settings.

  • This is most likely caused by the implementation of DirectWrite. The fonts now look blurry, but also thinner. Chrome has this issue too. I preferred how fonts were rendered in Opera 27.

    They don't hang out here. This is a user support forum. Try the Suggestion Box forum. You could also try filing a bug report or checking to see if someone else already has.
