Open Sans font rendering differently in Google Chrome browser

Featured Lock Resolved Issue

I am trying to user Google Open Sans font ( in my Helix3 template using SP Page Builder.

When I try and set font to be "Light" style with font weight 300 it renders fine on Microsoft Edge and Firefox (see image1.jpg) but displays as regular sized in Google Chrome (see image2.jpg).

Please advise how I may resolve this issue?

Hi Peter hard to say exactly, sometimes it's because each browser has its own engine.
I have to see URL to maybe tell more.

here is screenshot from my Chrome/PC - Open Sans
I saw that for white text on blue background you used
font-family: 'open sans';
font-size: 75px !important;
font-weight: 300;
font-style: normal;
font-stretch: normal;

to be sure....
