I prefer the OS X / Safari-on-Windows font rendering engine over Windows' ClearType, but I am not fond of Safari as a browser. Given that Chrome also uses Webkit, is it possible to enable/port the Safari text engine to it? What about Firefox?

I recommend using gdipp instead of GDI++ (also supports win7 x64 + 64 bit apps).

I recommend GDIPP too because GDI++ create some issues is some software that GDIPP doesn't. (VS2010, Office 2010...) – RHaguiuda Oct 29 '10 at 16:54

Have a look at this question which covers getting Apple-style font rendering throughout Windows.

The trick is to use GDI++.

It's certainly different from the Windows font rendering but it's not exactly like the Apple style rendering. – alex Oct 1 '09 at 10:56
Thanks for the suggestion. I tried that before and it's pretty clunky. Besides, I only really want Safari rendering in-browser atm, rather that throughout the OS. – Charles Roper Oct 1 '09 at 12:02
