CSS Fonts in Browsers

All fonts are not created equal, each browser will render fonts differently. Using Arial font (a very common font), your output will still look different when using IE, Chrome and FireFox.

Each browser and device uses its own character ranges and glyphs to render fonts. Each browser and device will also add its own default settings to each font, such as font-weight, which can be very different in each.
