According to the spec, only the selected tab should have a bold title on OS X.
Unfortunately, this causes some odd behavior when switching tabs. So after talking with shorlander, we should just set the font weight of all tabs to normal. This is visually balanced and it also gives us a character or two of title text back.
Posted patch Patch v1 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
This removes the rule that makes the title text bold.

Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): on m-c
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): simple CSS fix, so none, I guess?
String or IDL/UUID changes made by this patch: none
