Hi,

A bit unrelated but who here runs mozilla anti aliased: for example from <http://fontconfig.org/mozilla/> or blizzards rpms. Why is this not more widely used ? It's actually been one the best additions to my linux desktop in a few years....

It's still not in Mozilla proper yet, still waiting patiently.

Oops, I mean I do.

Hm. At home I'm running the builds from mozilla.org without antialiasing. At work AA is enabled (builds from <ftp://ftp.suse.com>). Actually I like it more without antialiasing. But I do have installed decent TrueType fonts, without them it's a pain.

Even with decent fonts (meaning fonts you copied over from another OS or bought yourself) the default build on my system (debian) doesn't display anti-aliased fonts as well as windows does (which is the minimum acceptable quality standard for me). I assume that's because of the whole patents-on-freetype debacle.

Since my screen is good enough to display fonts without anti-aliasing and not have it bother me I just leave it turned off.

#6 Off-Topic... CNN.com broken in Mozilla?

Okay, so this is one for the evangelists, but I find it pretty unusual that AOL wouldn't make the stories on CNN (the homepage is fine) render properly with Mozilla (don't know about Netscape 7). You'd think that would be the case especially as AOL/OS X and Compuserve use Mozilla.

Ooh, that happened to me too. Irritated the crap outta me at that. It's not a problem in Phoenix, I found. In some of the later nightlies from Mozilla it stopped being a problem with me, but those killed Optimoz and various other things, so I went back to 1.2a.

But yes, that is rather ironic to see the Netscape bar up at the top, and that their page doesn't even work right in the basis for Netscape.

Oh yes, I also found that if I refreshed enough, sometimes it would show up right. It seemed to me to be a problem with the vertical ad on the right side of the page. When thep problem surfaced, that ad wouldn't load properly, but if the ad did load properly, there was no problem.

Strange, huh? At least I'm happy with Phoenix ^_^
