Unfortunately there is a zero-day exploit out for older versions of Firefox that allows for a complete takeover. The newest version of Firefox is patched now. The problem for me is that I was using an older version of Waterfox which I liked and now it's not safe to use anymore at all. I will check another time newer versions of it. I normally do not use anti-aliasing at all on my Windows 7 computer.
For now, I decided to take another look at Chrome. While obviously not perfect, I did find a way to make the text rendering in Chrome a bit better. There are two things that need to be done.
1) Install this extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/font-rendering-enhancer/hmbmmdjlcdediglgfcdkhinjdelkiock
2) Go into Chrome settings, go to Advanced, System and turn off use hardware acceleration.
You need to do both. If you don't do #2, you aren't going to notice much with #1 by itself.
