Switch on color inversion from Magnifier and run ClearType
ClearType is Microsoft’s implementation of subpixel rendering technology in rendering text in a font system.
and ClearType sucks. ClearType doesn’t give the best font and the font looks awful bad even after configuring several times. I have tried it several times to get the font atleast good.
But while I was checking the magnifier recently, i came across color inversion and saw that my font looks awful while the color is inverted.
So i tried to switch on the inverted option in magnifier to and tried to configure the ClearType and selected all the ones that are good, and applied them.
Once i return back from color inversion, my font looked better than what I had previously applied.
Although it worked perfectly for some parts, other parts which looked nice before became bad.

I agree with you. They say there’s a lot of developing behind but with CSS I can add a simple instruction to get a better render than ClearType.
text-shadow: 0px 0px 1.2px #000000;
I didn’t even add an alpha rgb color, and it’s already better.
