Many (most?) Windows users think Apple’s font rendering is “blurry”. Mac fans counter that Microsoft’s rendering is “jaggy”. There’s a bit of truth to both arguments. Still, even though one can get used to anything, a direct comparison may help…The picture below is of Internet Explorer 8 and Safari running simultaneously on the same Windows XP box. Only someone used to it could prefer the text rendered on the left as opposed to the right, especially for hours at a time. (There’s a Safari “Windows Standard” preference that makes it as bad as the left.) I spend hours on both machines daily. Of all the differences using a Mac after using Windows all day, better font rendering may be the one I appreciate most.
