The paragraph starting with "The one major regret" has a smaller kerning. On that text, there are others with the same issue, but I have seen pages with only one of those. I looked into the source and there's no reason for that (it's just ...</p><p>blah blah blah </p><p>...). In fact, when I change the font size on my screen (CTRL+ or CTRL-), the difference between paragraphs disappears. As soon as I revert to the default size the problem returns.

I've noticed this several times on different pages. I don't know when it started, it was certainly before 3.6.

3. Profit! Sorry.
