    Not sure if it was here before, but I just discovered this little trick for sharper font rendering / better letter separation.

    a) Enable Safari debug menu (I believe that's the code:
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeInternalDebugMenu -bool true
    )

    b) Open debug menu, goto layout flags and enable Screen Font Substitution.

    You should see the effect straight away. The difference isn't very drastic, but it's noticeable. ;)

    Another solution would be to simply permanently zoom in the text by 106%.
    I believe this works best with MBA, as it pretty much matches the 13" MBP /retina/ UI scale.
