Why they did away with ClearType in IE bothers the hell out of me. It ruins an otherwise excellent browser.

I thought it was just a limited version of cleartype? They removed the color rendering in favor of simpler black and white?

Nope the rendering is done differently and is due to a set of reasons in this MSDN article.

I don't know why the other browsers don't do similar things. But IE is specific to Windows.
