Home Forums CSS @Font Looks Bad In WebKit Browsers Re: @Font Looks Bad In WebKit Browsers


You had my hopes up!
Just tried it and it didn’t work for me. I tried the code on some Google Web Fonts that I’ve known to have some issues in the Windows version of Chrome and Safari. The way I understand it, it is more dependent upon the anti-aliasing process. Chrome for Windows does anti-alias but just not as good as what DirectX can do. I looked into the above code, and it seems to only affect WebKit browsers on the Mac. Anyone else have any experience with this? I would love to be proved wrong!
You can impose a hack and add

text-shadow: 0 0 1px rgba(###,###,###,.5)

but that doesn’t really address the issue.
