I mean like... doodling on webpages is already an extension you can add onto existing browsers. Anyone here use something like that? Is it that great to make it a key focus for a new browser?
Going off hunting for an extension for something you don't even know you can do, VS using something that's built in, and you learn you can use by pressing the button, when you're thinking "What's that button for, I wonder?"

If you're screencasting and wanting to draw attention to something, why WOULDN'T you want the option of something that's there FOR FREE? Of course you would.

I tried one of those hacks to see how it looked, and...



...why the hell can't Windows look like this out of the box?
That is MUCH better. What hack is it?

I don't understand why they insist on the terrible default rendering.

You're looking right at it. GDIPP. It's probably the best one I've used.

Hell if I know why. It's my one last complaint about Windows. Everything else is pretty good these days, but the font rendering is still pretty bad, even in comparison to Linux.
