As the screenshot indicates, Google Chrome v16.0.891 Dev renders Chinese characters badly. The same ap plies to Japanese and Korean characters as well.

Since I'm on the Dev channel, some noticeable bugs is acceptable. What I'm not satisfy with is that while this bug has made Google Chrome Dev nearly unusable for CJK users, it seems that Chrome developers are not so aware of this bug, leaving it unfixed for over six days! (See: I'm wondering that if the same happens to English characters, will they dare to roll out a patch so slowly?

dev version aren't for productive usage.

that bug is marked as ReleaseBlock-Beta. so it will be fixed when chrome 16 enters beta.
