I'm curious when you create mockups in Photoshop CC (which now supports subpixel rendering), do you use it for your type layers or do you stick with the good old ones?
Nope. In fact, I have subpixel rendering disabled for my entire system. Being able to render using native OS text rendering was a nice addition though.
Yeah I guess it looks better that way, but most visitors will see your site with subpixel rendering? I can't make up my mind if I prefer pretty mockups or 100% accuracy
“most visitors will see your site with subpixel rendering”
Not if you turn it off (which is a great way to get some people angry at you!).
I’ve done it though. My site = my rules. :P
Ah, I see! Clever move (agree with "your site, your rules"). You did it with font-smoothing: antialiased; i presume?
Yep, that's the one. To be clear, there were other motivations: We have a bit of text in SVGs as shapes, and I wanted all the text to look the same. Plus, there's some light text on dark backgrounds, which can be inconsistent across different browsers and too fat in WebKit.
I don't think it'll even matter in a few years: http://bjango.com/articles/subpixeltext/
I've always preferred subpixel.
Heck no. This option has caused many headaches and delays.
