Hi! I've never posted a question before, so bear with me.
When I installed Windows 8, the fonts were beautiful. Then, and I'm not sure when it happened, the fonts in IE10 were ugly, seemingly bolded, and/or blurry. But what seemed like a sudden problem with IE10 was actually a problem with font rendering in many places: the Mail app, even the Start screen! Clearly this was a font rendering issue with the computer, right?
But Firefox and any other third party desktop app still renders fonts perfectly. So, what gives?
I used the Clear Type tuner, and noticed that the fonts look great up until Step 4, but in Step 5, all the fonts look jaggy, and totally ugly. I want the fonts in Step 4!
I'll show you what I mean, so that it's easier to see:
This is IE10 and Firefox side by side. Notice how IE10's fonts are disfigured, almost randomly bolded, while Firefox's are clean and even. (This is after some fiddling with ClearType, so neither is perfect, but you get the idea)
