Font rendering issue with all themes
I've noticed recently that when I look at the Studiopress themes (and other places online), a lot of them use fonts that render in a messy fashion, and that includes the main Studiopress site (attached is a screencap of how the fonts look on both Chrome and Firefox) and based on the reading up I've been doing this morning, my guess is that it has to do with the way the browsers are programmed to render all fonts where some fonts render better at any size or sharpness than others. In general, I've noticed that all fonts look too sharp, even the ones that render clean and readable, maybe it's been this way for a while and I just noticed, but it's making it very difficult to know which Google Font (and a lot of your themes use Google Fonts) is going to end up looking decent until I set up the site in question - not great for web design workflow to have to go backwards with design decisions after picking a certain look.
ANYWAY, to cut my ramble short, is there any way that fonts can be made to behave in the most common browsers (Firefox, IE, Chrome, etc) to fix this messy rendering problem? I know I'm probably asking the wrong folk (should probably take it up with the browser developers) but maybe you guys have worked out some tricks to get around this issue.
Thanks for any thoughts or advice.
