Hi,
I'm sorry in advance, I don't well speak english.

In Firefox, the fonts haven't the anti-aliasing system.
Proof by picture !

At the left, Firefox with bad presentation. And at the right, Chrome with perfect fonts.
Why ? And how can fix it in CSS 3 ?

I searched a lot of time on the web and I have just found : text-shadow: 0px 0px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);
But, it's very ugly as implementation and the blur degrades the apparence of typography.

Thank you very much, find me a solution. :)

I don't know that there is anything you can do in CSS about this.

Do you notice any difference depending on whether your Firefox is using hardware acceleration and whether your Windows is maximizing use of ClearType?

Yes, but I develop web site ... My visitors may have any OS and browser.
In fact, CSS3 had for project to add a smoothing syntax. But Firefox does not want it.
I await the day when all browser will line up on one model. <3

What do ? :)
