Font smoothing for Windows
About smoothing. I came into Windows, I opened Chrome and I came on kremen.ua
Enormous difference in display of a font to Mac and to Windows!
There are solutions of JS/CSS for font smoothing in the browser?

No, unfortunately not. The appearance of that text in Windows is by design. Apple's rendering of fonts tries to keep the appearance of the text as close as possible to the way it was designed. Microsoft's text rendering follows hinting in the font to align different parts of the font with the pixels. They don't smooth it to make it as clear as possible. Chrome is using Microsoft's API to render the text, so it will be rendered like that regardless of what you want.

Windows users can select "ClearType" for font anti-aliasing, or web developers can use CSS3 to make any TrueType font downloadable although this is not widely supported.
One of the lesser known solutions for web developers to serve a font which is major vendor cross browser compatible and allows for complete control is CUFON:
