It's a rendering technique called subpixel rendering. In order to get a higher perceived resolution than your monitor actually has, the font rendering engine intelligently makes use of the fact that different colours are located on different sides of the pixel.

that said, sub-pixel font anti-aliasing > gray-scale font anti-aliasing
