Thumbs down Google Chrome fonts became different

A little bit late now but...
A couple months ago I updated Google Chrome to newer version and noticed that fonts became deffirent from what was before. They became kinda narrow, pretty much like in Firefox. They were wider before. I am not talking about font hinting/rendering. It stays the same. But letters became narrow. What happened? Is it possible to get 'em back like they were before?

Change the font settings, maybe?

Wrench icon -> Options -> Under the Hood -> Change font and language settings
