Sorry, don't confuse me with John T. -- I don't know what he did.   I've 
turned it off simply because of the numerous issues with LCD rendering 
(but those are not JavaFX specific) -- it is turned off system-wide 
though, so if I wanted to make a comparison, I should still be able to.

Anyway, I'm not making any direct comparisons (certainly not with IE10), 
but look at the screenshot, and see how poorly the "2" glyph is rendered 
in the top bar.  This wasn't like that before and I've had that top bar 
in for well over a year now.
