I'm on OSX/Chrome21, and it is quite hard to read for me as well. In addition to exploring other font options, I would recommend you play with the `line-height` css property to give the text some breathing room!

In the article "Secret Symphony: The Ultimate Guide to Readable Web Typography" [1] the author covers `line-height`, line width, proportions, and stresses the importance of getting typography right for to your readers. The article then goes into some golden ratio stuff, which may be a little more than you are interested in, but give it a look!
