High res displays

I can't wait until extremely high resolution displays are common, and hinting simply doesn't make sense any more. I suspect that'll start to happen even before that patent runs out. (only two years, I'm an optimist) :-)

I'm also in the camp that prefers Mac OS X/Safari 3 font rendering (I even prefer Safari on Windows just for that - now if I could only remember my OSNews username/password which is stored in Firefox ;-P ).

Couldn't you just look the username/password up (Preferences, Privacy, Passwords)? The only catch is that it's not easy when you have loads of passwords remembered. I often let it sort on Username, because the Site entry is quite variable.
