On websites, like <> the dropdown menus at the top of each page have the text sorta fuzzy looking with red/blue tints around the edges of some of the letters when using Gran Paradiso Alpha 1. Also the right pixel or two of each line is cut off. Probably both related to Cario rendering now. Neither problem shows up in Firefox 2.0.
