One of the immediate complaints people have had about the new Safari for Windows beta is how “fuzzy” the fonts seem to look in comparison to Internet Explorer or Firefox. There’s a quick solution to this issue, although only partially, since Safari doesn’t use ClearType on Windows for some odd reason.
Just go to Edit \ Preferences, and choose the Appearance tab.
You should see a “Font Smoothing” dropdown menu, which you can change to “Light” to make the font smoothing less “fuzzy”. Here’s some example screenshots for your enjoyment:
Font smoothing: Medium (more fuzzy)
Font smoothing: Light (less fuzzy)
Font smoothing: Strong (absurdly fuzzy)
Take your pick! I personally chose Light as my default, and it seems to make a big difference.
