Font rendering worse than Chromium


#1

OSX High Sierra
Atom.app: version 1.20.1
Chromium: Version 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit)

Can anyone explain how I can make Atom’s font rendering look more like Chrome/Chromiums? Or at least why there is a difference?

You should be able to see all the styles being applied to the font sample in the inspector views in the big screenshot below:

closer look, now with atom using .workspace { text-rendering: optimizeLegibility; }:

atom_font_rendering_with_optimizeLegibility
.

even closer…

Thanks!
