Okay, I'm sure you're going to ask for it, so here it is:
On the top is Internet Explorer 5.1.3 (3905) as it is by default. On the bottom is the same text in the same program after using TinkerTool to disable antialiasing provided by QuickDraw in Carbon applications.
This is not
, however, the same antialiasing method used by OmniWeb and many other apps. They use the newer AA by CoreGraphics. Internet Explorer could
use that very easily, but the MBU prefers to maintain the traditional method in order to retain complatibility with web sites (because the new AA apparently uses slightly different metrics, as shown by the trouble Omni has had).
Do you see now?
