Those Crappy Apple Fonts
Yeah they're really bad all right.
A while back George Ou was ouing about how Microsoft fonts were so much better than Apple's. Maybe it's about time for a side by side comparison. Same page but first with Microsoft's tugboat browser Internet Explorer and then the same page with Apple's Safari running not under the latest but under the next to latest - Tiger.
First a screenshot taken with Internet Explorer from a page off the web. It's from a segment Brian Krebs offered on a bit of a scandal presumably involving Microsoft again.
Note the font has no antialiasing at all.
Now the same page but as seen through Safari. Courtesy the space age text system built into OS X.
You be the judge.
OS X: it's not just better security.
