Paul is kinda wrong to praise Edge’s text rendering


I noticed Paul always speaks highly of Edge’s text rendering and it made me give Edge a try on several occasions but I would not see this great text rendering he would always speak of, but I finally realized why: on a HiDPI (“Retina” in Apple speak) display, Edge does indeed have the best text rendering of all the browsers, but on a low/normal DPI display, text in Edge looks pretty bad, really ugly and rough, especially for smaller text, and as we know, the VAST majority of people have low/normal DPI displays. Edge really does require a very hi res display in order to make text look good: I was comparing Edge to Firefox on a 15″ 1080p laptop and they were even but smaller text looked better in Firefox. On a Surface Book though, text looked better in Edge compared to Firefox but the difference wasn’t dramatic
