Using IE10 in Windows 8 is a blurry experience.
I wish classic shell could do some kind of a fix for this.

IE9/IE10/IE11 use DirectWrite to render text and Microsoft has offered no control over the ClearType implementation in DirectWrite, not even an IE specific setting. There were app-specific hacks by some developers (http://blog.softwareninjas.ca/2011/03/how-to-take-control-of-internet.html) for IE9/apps that used IE9's renderer that involved intercepting all calls to DWrite.dll. Those hacks may need to be updated for IE10/IE11.

Could this hack be included in Classic IE?

IE11 uses subpixel in Win7 but does not in Win8. Why?
