After updating system, all my fonts are Ok but the Chromium fonts and only on some websites, not all of them. Everything looks good in the Chromium options so far.

Demo of screwed site here : http://awesomescreenshot.com/01c2lxyz7a

It looks like is not a bad rendering of fonts, but a changed font only on certain sites ... does someone knows the name of this font so I can try to remove it from system usage ¿?

Here is another screenshot

There are lots of guides around on how to configure many things. I have suffered that same problem for quite a long time, and what really made a difference for me was all these fonts substitutions in /etc/fonts/local.conf

Code:
  <alias>
    <family>sans-serif</family>
    <prefer>
      <family>DejaVu Sans</family>
      <family>Droid Sans</family>
    </prefer>
    <default><family>DejaVu Sans</family></default>
  </alias>
  <alias>
    <family>serif</family>
    <prefer>
      <family>DejaVu Sans</family>
      <family>Droid Sans</family>
    </prefer>
    <default><family>DejaVu Sans</family></default>
  </alias>
  <alias>
    <family>monospace</family>
    <prefer>
      <family>DejaVu Sans Mono</family>
      <family>Droid Sans Mono</family>
    </prefer>
    <default><family>DejaVu Sans Mono</family></default>
  </alias>
  <match target="font">
    <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle">
      <const>hintfull</const>
    </edit>
  </match>
  <alias>
    <family>Arial</family>
    <prefer>
      <family>DejaVu Sans</family>
      <family>Ubuntu</family>
    </prefer>
    <default><family>DejaVu Sans</family></default>
  </alias>   
  <alias>
    <family>Helvetica</family>
    <prefer>
      <family>DejaVu Sans</family>
      <family>Ubuntu</family>
    </prefer>
    <default><family>DejaVu Sans</family></default>

Your preferred site might use some other font, in which case you will need to add it. In that case, this plugin will come in handy:
