The browsers use the system fonts.

Run clear type tuner;

For better display in Firefox change the fonts;

When i first installed IE9 it had very blurry text but it now seems fine.
I do find that disabling GPU rendering & smoth scrolling makes the text look slightly worse.
Its probably just the GPU rendering but i made both changes at the same time.

If you want an alternative renderer then try this;

Which is updating the font files that have issues with the new font smoothing.

But yeah I don't know I never had an issue with blurry fonts on my 17-inch laptop with a resolution of 1920x1200 (aka. damn small pixels!)

We found that turning on compatibility view for all websites resolved the issue for us. Hit Alt, Tools, Compatibility View settings, check box at bottom.
