I've chatted with David about this bug (thanks David!). Ideally, we want to use printer font even for screen as it's high quality. However, David worried that we may break compatibility by using printer fonts on screen.

I propose to use screen fonts even for printing only on Mac Chromium for now. Because

- Changing screen fonts of both Mac Safari and Mac Chromium can introduce compatibility issues and it seems to be difficult to make this decision soon.
- If we change screen font only for Mac Chromium, it means there will be discrepancy of screen rendering between Mac Safari and Mac Chromium. Difference of printing result would be more acceptable.
- With this change, we can check if users complain about lower quality fonts on printing using Chromium's dev-channel.

Patch will come soon later. Any comments will be appreciated!
