    Firefox and Chrome fonts

    There is a difference between Firefox and Chrome fonts (Arial). Chrome font looks jagged.

    Is possible to fix this issue with CSS?
    Thank you!

    No it isn't possible in CSS.

    You can use siFR to replace the text though that is a painful and dangerous option.
    It's noticable in small font text, but less in a bigger font, so try to increase it to make it less noticable.

    I don't know anything about Chrome's anti-aliasing, but I'd guess you would enable it to minimize the problem...?

    Yes, my suggestion to increase the font size is the only way to minimize the problem-I think it is increasing it anyway-too much stuff in my head. Either making it bigger or smaller minimizes the problem-I think bigger though.

    Does Arial use ClearType? I thought it didn't make use of the technology because the typeface has been within Windows long before the concept of font smoothing was in motion (therefore it should not be jagged to start off with as it's built to be smooth when antialiasing is unavailable)?
