    A while ago I started noticing the fonts on Eurogamer looked like crap. Thin and pixely. I tried playing with the view sizes and eventually just figured it was a bug in the browser or font or something.

    Then, today, I saw this:

    A bit of experimentation with the Chrome inspector confirms it: Eurogamer is disabling subpixel rendering, and when its re-enabled, the body text was far more readable.

    I really don't get how you could not see how bad it looks - maybe it looks ok on Windows or Safari or something - but it looks awful on Chrome on Mac.

    Please fix this.

    Thanks!
