Two of the possible causes are:
- the Qt based browser probably have a different font lookup for certain
names, so they might end up with a different font then the GTK based browsers
- You X server is not running 96x96 DPI. As far as I know GTK uses a fixed DPI
value of 96, while Qt uses the DPI settings of the X server. If the website
author also uses a system with fixed setting, e.g. Windows, they might have
used fonts which look good on their system and look out of proportion on
systems with correct (device specific) DPI settings.
