The browser people have their own rendering separate from the OSes.

Sometime in the previous millennium MS decided to have the Windows font renderer prefer snapping to pixels vs smearing small fractions of a pixel offset into grayscale across two pixels. The objective was to favor screen readability over trying to match the result if printed (at a much higher resolution).

Within the limits of the low DPI screens of the era, where the smearing was obvious and getting something "pixel perfect" wasn't really possible; it was a reasonable decision IMO. Unfortunately it wasn't one that's scaled well to today's much higher density displays.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
