Using Firefox 16.0.2 22 on Windows 8, I've had a hard time reading certain sentences. Browser is normal zoom.

clean looks like dean.
click looks like dick.

Screenshot if you cannot see it:

And generally a lot of letters are too close (close, not dose, hehe).
Like ct in 'exactly' in my screenshot, and ce.

Edit: This happens in Chrome as well. But not IE. Edit2: Added click example, as I've seen this some times lately..

    Hmm, well I'm using Firefox, and your first "clean" sentence looks fine to me. Commented Oct 31, 2012 at 18:29
  • @RobertHarvey added Fx version. Are you using W8 as well?

    Windows 7. Does Windows 8 really exist, or is it just a facade of pretty colored squares? :P Commented Oct 31, 2012 at 18:32

  • @RobertHarvey Hmm, not sure what is causing this then. No one else experiencing this?

  • I see this also in Chrome. There's a slight spacing difference between the "cl" and "d" where the round part of the "c" sticks out about a pixel more to the left than the "d", but they do look awfully similar at the default font size.
