    IE 7 integrate Clear type text which blurs some pixels to make it seem smoother on LCD screens I believe.

    This is acutally a microsoft powertoy that can be downloaded to keep on all the time

    IE7 by default uses the Windows XP ClearType engine to render text (because it looks better on LCD screens, though it can be an acquired taste.)

    On some LCD screens, and on CRT screens, the text can just look blurred or at worst, strangely coloured.

    If you'd like to turn off this features, go to Tools -> Options... -> Click the Advanced tab -> Scroll down to the Multimedia section and uncheck the "Always use ClearType for HTML" box.

    Finally, restart IE and the text will be back to normal.

    You should download FireFox at getfirefox.com to get a better browser than IE7.
