Nice nugget Sam, thanks. You are already #2 on Google for optimizeLegibility. Will give this a little test on my current project.

I’ve noticed this change (in headers mostly) a few days ago on Firefox 3.6, but now I view that test page and it doesn’t seem to be working. I ran a test on BrowserLab and it looks that it’s working on OSX but not on Windows. Do you have any idea if it’s been disabled in the latest builds? I’m using Windows 7 ×64 btw.

Oh my god! It’s like magic! Wait, why would you ever turn this off? …It’s like Photoshop’s “maximize compatibility” button.

Thanks for sharing!

Worth noting that I think this is currently “Apple-only”. Tested on all the browsers listed above on my Windows machine and no joy. Had a ganders on my MacBook. Looks sweet.

Seeing no apparent differences on Windows 7 ×64. But I’m sure there’s something awesome.
