    That extension makes a big difference and i would not want to be without it. It should have millions of users instead of only 36k. I have mine set in options at 96.

    I found it to not make any difference at all. Uninstalled it.

    Agree with that. I could not distinguish between the Before/After on the Overview page. I try hard to keep my extension count to a minimum, so Font Rendering Enhancer didn't make the cut.

    Did you refresh the page? A page refresh is needed to see the extension do its job.

    You know you don't need a separate extension for "I don't care about cookies"? You can add the same list into uBO.

    I didn't add it to ublock because it says it's not as effective as the extension

    I don't care fonts, but surprised to find that font-smooth property is not available on any browser on Windows. So if the extension is meant to complement that, you won't see difference in other platform. Note font rendering can vary on OS, browser, and actual fonts on each pages. IDK how it works, but I found there are many hacks to achieve similar effect - if what the extension do is only (any combination of) these tricks there'll be no need for it, you can use Stylus or even uBO or AdGuard tho universally apply CSS rules on the latter is not directly possible. Just for curiosity I tested one of the hacks w/ uBO rule on the latest Brave on Win10 for Google search (I just copy-pasted that 0.2px value, but others claim different values. There seems to be many more hacks but I have no interest in testing them all):
    Code:
    google.*##body:style(-webkit-text-stroke-width: 0.2px !important)

    That means they haven't spent the same level of effort for the filter as the extension, for uBO or AG or even ABP have all the necessary function to remove virtually any cookie warnings. Having compared the filter w/ Fanboy and AG Annoyances filters, I'd say the filter is more likely to cause FPs than at least AG Annoyances. I personally only use my own filters for cookie consents but I guess for most ppl AG Annoyances alone will be enough - if it's not just use the element picker.

    It's so weird that this problem has never been fixed on Chromium based browsers, Google should be ashamed. This extension seems to work on some sites, but not on all, that's the downside. For example, I don't see any difference on Yahoo Finance, fonts look a bit blurry. No problem on Firefox.
