Interestingly enough, there’s a bug in Gecko that also causes OS X to revert to Standard (non-subpixel rendering) anti-aliasing, this time when the CSS property “opacity” is in use and set to any value other than its default of 1.

So I guess if you wanted this pull off this effect in Camino and Firefox on Mac, as well as in Safari, you could simply specify “opacity: 0.9999” or something to that effect on the body element. The downside is, there’s no apparent way to pick and choose where the effect is applied (it is a bug, after all), which might make smaller text too thin and difficult to read.
