    A really nice site, I have to say and damn nice works featured. But I find some minor quibbles on the design. The descriptive text here is barely legible : http://cl.ly/0n1x3A3Q3F3c2m0a2z13 I would consider amping up the contrast a few notches. The navigation through the site is quite wiggly. The panels sliding back and forth seems to me like lilly pads in water moving when you wave your hands in water, may I suggest to highlight the current panel, something like this : http://cl.ly/050A0z0o2t2L3Q0n3w02 to focus the current post instead of the wiggle effect ?

    @Prathyush Pramod Man thanks for your feedback, you are right about the contrast I think its because you are using Windows, I will change the font weight, about the wiggle effect maybe its to fancy, I will try maybe combining your example with a reduce space of the effect. Thanks!

    @Salvador Mendoza Yep, I used to be a sub pixel fan for half of my life. But I tried turning it off for a day and realised how much unnecessary weight it was adding to the letterforms. Also, by reading about the technical details of the rendering, I was able to form that it was a hack.

    @Prathyush Pramod I catch what your are saying, maybe works and most of the time works if you are designing or coding for cross-browser things, but I think it helps to not force your eyes vision on seeing more thin/no-subpixel text. Just myt opinion. Maybe I will change it .

    @Salvador Mendoza Normal anti-aliasing isn't making the text thinner, it's the other way round, sub-pixel AA is making it thicker than the intended weight by the original type designers.

    I have been extensively using normal AA for both coding as well as designing for about an year now and never ever found that the rendering hampered my workflow. Just make sure that you have been on the other side before you make assumptions :)
