I thought this fuzzy text problem was fixed. Or is it just me?
Oh dear god, not the fuzzy text threads again.
I don't have subpixel antialiasing in IE. Strange, ClearType is enabled.
This issue occurs because of a design change to how Internet Explorer 9 renders text. By default, Internet Explorer 9 uses sub-pixel positioned ClearType to render text by using DirectWrite, whereas Internet Explorer 8 uses whole-pixel positioned ClearType to render text by using the Microsoft Windows graphics device interface (GDI).
I find that it almost always improves if you run both the Cleartype tuner and the Color Calibration wizards. A well calibrated display is pretty much key to good results from Cleartype.
Let's start the diagnosis. Can you post a picture...
of your eyes?
@evildictaitor: Internet Explore completely ignores the output of the ClearType tuning app. But at least both the desktop and metro versions are consistant in their obtuseness.
screenshot? It looks fine to me, except it is kinda grayish instead of black.
@magicalclick: It's on my work computer and power management kicked-in, turning the machine off. If you do a print screen, paste it into paint, and blow it up 800%, is the anti-aliasing colored or grayscale?
Is it like IE9 and totally disregards any choice to disable ClearType ?
I still refuse to use IE9 because I can't abide ClearType, and none of the 'workarounds' in KB2638466 are of any help to me.
Notebook, Intel Graphics, Windows 8 CP, result = grayscale.
