## Overview

On some websites, text rendered in small point sizes looks ugly, there is no

There are certainly more websites affected.

## Actual result

Rendered text looks ugly.

## Expected result

Text is rendered more smoothly, similar to how it works on most websites.

font also looks fine (tested with Source [Sans|Serif|Code] Pro).
