--- Comment #2 from Alicia Boya GarcĂ­a <aboya at igalia.com> ---
For some reason, the interpretation of font-weight for some fonts (including
both Lucida Grande and Tahoma) is inconsistent among browsers.

This MDN page includes a handy tester: 

The case of WebKitGTK is surprising and problematic. It actually knows how to
render the font with the correct bold thickness and does that when requested
font-weight: 600... but in CSS `bold` stands for 700. When requested 700 and up
it artificially thickens the font.
