Force font override in safari?

I noticed that there are some webpages that have very interesting articles, yet I find that I don't end up reading them and skip to read something else, and a few days ago I suddenly realized why - when webpages use fonts with serifs it makes me not want to read it!

A few years ago I learned that Serif fonts are designed to make the printed page easier to read, but serifs make on-screen reading much more difficult (more info on the topic). But it was only now that I put 2 and 2 together.

Is there anyway to make safari override the page's specified font?
