Font Rendering Issue
I had no idea where to post this question so I picked the forum that was most closely related (imo). I am running on a Macbook Pro and have a dual display using a 27" Apple Cinema Display. My colleague has EXACTLY the same setup, and he is NOT experiencing the same problem.
Anyway, I am having an issue with fonts rendering in my browsers--all of them! I'm talking Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. I have the most recent versions of all of these browsers. All text is rendering bolder than it should be on any site that I visit. However, in Photoshop, the text is exactly the weight that it should be. I have checked all over in my system preferences panel to no avail. This is driving me crazy because the rendered browser version of the sites I develop are not matching up with the design and I keep making changes that I shouldn't be making.
I need someone to save my sanity. Any ideas?Humbly,

Thanks for the reply knev. While I was waiting I tried more Google searching and it turns out that in the System Preferences Appearance Panel there is a checkbox to "Use LCD font smoothing where possible." Apparently this process bolds up all text. Unchecking it solved my problem!Humbly,
