"The windows browsers render the fonts based on the normal sub-pixel rendering without implementing Font smoothing, anti-aliasing as noticeable as Mac OSX. This tweak applies text to be displayed more anti-aliased using CSS3 property. So modern browsers supporting CSS3 and userstyle support would be able to support it. ;)"

I can't really tell the difference of text with or without the extension. What I can notice (after a long troubleshoot to find the source of the problem) is that having this extension active disables YouTube subtitles' character edge style. Whichever style I click, it's not applied to the subs. Now that I disabled this extension, I finally have the character edge style applied to the YouTube subs again. I'll be uninstalling this extension now.

Font Rendering Enhancer is very good but it makes certain fonts e.g. emoji from Segoe UI Emoji look bad. The developer should add some "Exclusion list" for certain fonts e.g. emoji fonts so they are not touched at all in the browser.

总体不错,不过个别的应用上会渲染有点问题,比如 bilibili 的弹幕会丢失描边效果。另外似乎设定存在云上,导致没法针对 mac 和 windows 分别设置有点尴尬
