With the latest preview, do non-retina displays look better than before? Thanks!
what do you mean?
The text does look cleaner and more crisp on PB2 than on PB1.
I see no improvements on this.
I noticed immediately that the bookmarks bar in Safari is easier to read in Beta 2. I also think there have been subtle changes to text elsewhere, but this was the change that stood out most for me.
I've also noticed a significant improvement in animation smoothness with my integrated GPU (mainly Mission Control), and I'm no longer getting an alarming graphics glitch when the dedicated GPU kicks in.
Lots of little improvements. I like this new beta a lot, and it's making me more excited about the GM/final release!
I want to know when they are going to clean up the jagged edges on all popovers throughout the OS.
I don't know if this looks like way on Retina displays or not.
That box on the dashboard is a little bit jagged on Retina as well but not nearly as much as yours. It's only visible if i look really close. Other boxes seems fine.
It does look a bit better! Safari tabs are now more proeminet and readable, and the fonts throughout the system don't suck with dark mode enabled
For me it certainly looks readable. I am running it on a 13" mid-2012 cMBP.
Yes, I agree that in PB 2 the text overall looks 'crisper' overall, and I like that they made the active tab in Safari stand out more.
indeed, dark mode menu font does suck less overall. Over dark texture it is pretty smooth. It tends to suffer when the dropdown is over something light though e.g. this site. The white text gets visibly "stickier", I guess. This problem was also present in pb1.
Generally things look great on my 2011 iMac.
I don't know that this has anything to do with Non-retina display, however I have noticed that when scrolling a webpage, the text looks ever so slightly blurred or pixelated rather than crips. When you stop scrolling it is crisp again.
And no it is not my eyes! This does not occur when running SL on the same computer.
This is how it looks on Retina display
It's more of a general property of LCD displays. My Air's display blurs fast-scrolling text, and always has.
I have a 2012 cMBP and the display of Yosemite PB 2 looks pretty good. Seems crisp and clear to me.
Whole rendering seems crisper not just fonts.
Colors are still a bit darker but now feels to have better overall saturation and intensity.
Still room for improvements but is much better in visuals and is finally kind of usable.
Both my Imac and Macbook running Snow Leopard don't have blurred/pixelated text when scrolling. It is more pixelated than blurred and it is nothing to do with my eyes. I also did not notice it in Yosemite PB1 (but can't be certain). However it certainly is there in PB2 on both Imac & macbook.
I can live with it... but I thought maybe it had something to do with being a non-retina display - but I really have no idea.
