Bad web font rendering on Safari iOS - Wordpress

Hey, I'm building my Wordpress site but I'm having trouble with webfonts.

I've installed the font Karla (through Google Fonts) but it is not rendering well on Safari iOS, as opposed to my Chrome browser. The font is displaying way lighter, as if it wasn't antialiased.

Is it inherent to this font? I'm wondering it could be linked to some faulty CSS attributes.. I've tried to tweak the "font-weight" and "-webkit-font-smoothing" properties but nothing has changed so far...

Thanks a lot

that depends on the browser rendering engine! safari, chrome, firefox they all have different engines and so the font varies from browser to browser.
