I made an extensive list of comparisons of the font rendering in different
browsers on different systems with different system.

One thing to note is that Safari on windows ignores that i have a BGR and not a
RGB screen, if you find the Opera, IE and Firefox shots to looko a little odd
then remember that is is the othere way around for me.

The conclusion here is that Safari renderes the same on Mac and Windows as it
brings the Mac OS X rendere with it in the Windows port, where as Firefox uses
the native font rendere on both systems. This causes Safari to look different
then all othere Windows programs and can is probably the source of people
thinking it is fater on Windows then on Mac witch is not the case.

Please also note that in contrast to the original 3 images i have uses AA on
all renderes and regardless Safari still renderes a fater font then other
Windows based browsers (as mentioned this is not a bug but a choice of style).

The disregard for BGA monitors looks to be the reason why the font look blurry
in Safari compared to othere browsers, since you closed this bug I am going to
open a new on for this issues.
