Come recent update, japanese font rendering became significantly worse

Description of the issue:

Before said update the font looked exactly as it does in Chrome, but now it looks different and is barely readable.

Expected result:

Same font as in Chrome

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.1.20 Chromium: 79.0.3945.74 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

I’ve verified that all my font settings are identical to those in Chrome. I also checked the text css to see if font-family is the same and indeed it is in both browsers.
Also tried to disable all extensions in both browsers and the results are the same.
Windows 10 but the platform shouldn’t matter because it works in Chrome so the platform is configured properly most likely

How it looks in Chrome:

How it looks in Brave:


Having the same issue. In previous posts it’s recommended to disable hardware acceleration, this hasn’t worked for me.

I feel like I’m reading comic sans here


still not fixed


Brave dev is on chromium version 79, which still has this font problem. But I also have chrome dev 81 and normal rendering there is back… I guess we’re just gonna have to wait brave to update to latest chromium.
