June 13 update: well, I guess it’s not just my imagination.
Safari is now out for Windows! I’m using it now (on Windows XP). the text looks much darker than on Firefox. For example, look at the headers for our sidebar links in the photos below.I guess it’s acceptable for English words, but for viewing Chinese words, it’s all squishy and makes the text hard to read.you can compare the two here (click for full-sized image so you can compare the text properly):
anyway, just wanted to share the news. will report on any more strange observations if I meet any.
