What's the irony of overriding OSX system font rendering on the Apple website? http://www.dropbox.com/s/40tyd5odereyfxa/Screenshot%202014-06-03%2016.30.03.png
Sadly, I've been using this line of code on pretty much every site I've built that uses web fonts since around 2010, I even wrote a post on the issue which gets a lot of traffic: http://ilikekillnerds.com/2010/12/a-solution-to-stop-font-face-fonts-looking-bold-on-mac-browsers/ — In Chrome on Mac, most web fonts look really thick and chunky without this line of code, especially on retina screens.
I would like to think Apple are going to try and change this, but its been an issue for years now with no fix in sight.
Next step: responsive pages?
They still pressed that "Save For Web" button for some text here: http://cl.ly/VrtH . For every language possible.
Also, will they change Lucida in the navigation bar at the top? Stay tuned!
Yeah, strange that they still use images for some things...
I also spotted that yesterday. They use Myriad Set Pro and Helvetica Neue. At last Apple decided to enter in the new web era. I guess they did it because they were interested in IE's and right now IE is becoming really obsolete.
How does it look in Chrome on Windows?
Woff renders smoothly on win7 chrome, unlike .tff or .otf or any other font file. I reckon thats why they've been using images for all these years, crappy font rendering.
I've been wondering about this for some time now. Finally!
You'd think it would be consistent.
Seems like it's only on certain pages.
Only on new pages.
I noticed that this morning, it's about time!
Seriously about time....
