Ask about font-weight more lighter in Firefox than other browsers

Posted

Hi,

I'm Richard. Now, I'm as a web developer at https://autospix.com

I want to ask why font-weight in Firefox is lighter in Firefox than in other browsers (e.g. Chrome). Like if you set font-weight: 700, it works fine in Chrome but in Firefox it looks like set to 500.

Thanks

Hello Richard Bravo,

Every browser uses its own font-rendering engine, my guess is that's why the font will be lighter in one browser than in the other.
