    hello all,

    Just noticed that the font for story headings for example on MR looks bad. I compared the font to same browsers on my mac mini at work also on a 1440x900 display and they look fine there. Any suggestions? The font smoothing setting under appearance didn't seem to change anything.

    I do, I think. It's kinda blown up and fuzzy looking, most likely from the titles being a bold white, and the screen. Try changing the font size up and see if it sticks.

    EDIT: Actually, it really doesn't look that different in comparison to the text below it. It all kind of looks the same...
