CSS font-smoothing

You might be tempted to use the full capabilities of your browser to do things such as font-smoothing, but it’s not a good idea as it is often overused and the Browser/OS will generally do it’s best.

Both Firefox and Safari have support of this CSS attribute as follows:

font-smoothing: antialiased;
-webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;

NOTE: If you’re using something like Glyphicons (included with Bootstrap) you might have some use for this because of the way that fonts are used for icons.


meta viewport minimal-ui… a good idea in it’s time, just not useable…

Apple added this capability for fullscreen browser applications in Safari for IOS 7.1, unfortunately, they removed it in IOS 8.0
