3 thoughts on “GDI Text Rendering For Safari On Windows

  1. You’ve made quite a leap by assuming that GDI will become Apple’s preferred choice. Providing the option to use GDI font rendering is quite different than switching to it completely.

  2. @Gavin Brown: Well that’s why I said “looks like”. Secondly, it seems likely as a major criticism is that font rendering is fugly on Windows. I’m pretty sure Apple wants to address that. Adding GDI font rendering seems pretty labor intensive to be intended as just an option.

    Because of that, I think my suspicion is correct.

  3. The type in Safari on Windows is “Linuxish”.

    I have no idea … what is it going to take for Linux desktops to look less “Safari on Windows-ish”??
