In nearly all SWFs, the text is too bold.
This only affects Shumway running in browsers on Mac OSX where Web fonts seem to be rendered bolder in general (due to Mac OSX's advanced text anti aliasing). Even though there is a way to change the anti aliasing behavior via CSS, there is no option available for text drawn via Canvas.

Sounds like something we might want to propose as a context2D feature. I'm pretty optimistic that implementing this would be easy enough.
This is an annoying fidelity issue, but not a Shumway blocker.

CSS properties applied to the canvas should affect text rendered in canvas.
