I've upgraded to Safari 5.0.2 yesterday, now text looks thin and soft and less readable. Is this a bug or is it on purpose? Does anyone know if there a way to get back to how it was before?

Worked for me.Open "Terminal" and enter the following commands to clear the user (or global) databases and restart the server:
atsutil databases -removeUser
atsutil server -shutdown
atsutil server -ping
