Depends on the renderer.  And of course elements that are inherently 
bitmaps, like images, can only print at the resolution they have.  But 
modern text is vector, and it's text I'm most interested in for crispness.

Most browsers will render at device resolution, so on screen that's the 
screen resolution but when printing it's much higher.

I believe revBrowser tapped into that browser printing method for that 

It would be nice if the same method were available for the browser widget.
