"Source Sans Pro" font-weight: 400 displays bolder than 600 on Chrome, Safari and Firefox

It seems the font weight: 400 is bolder than 600. Does this happen only to me? On my Mac Book Pro, it displays the same on Chrome, Safari and Firefox. So, I guess it is not a browser related issue.

What is the best solution for this? Using font weight:600 rather than 400 for a normal font weight? I don't know how to report the issue to Google.

Answer

As mentioned in the comments, this is likely an issue with your machine (happens to the best of us).

Take a look at this fiddle on a different machine (I've personally verified font-weight changes on multiple browsers); you will see the differences.
