but at least they have better contrast

My experience is that high contrast strains the eye, and create some curious reaction in how image is perceived by the brain. To me, high contrast fonts create a kind of bright glow around characters, and with high density the glow goes over other character, making them very difficult to read. So as you can guess i prefer fuzzy rendering, and i often sigh after Mac OS X font rendering. Since breezy & feisty, font rendering is much better though.

You should see Gutsy. Its beautiful. If I can notice a difference then they must have definitely improved. I personally like OSX's font rendering it works great on OSX itself but in safari on windows it looks off due to the lack of uniformity.
