Xft Antialiased Font Support Now Available in Linux

"I've installed the RPMs on my RH8 system, and pages look simply beautiful now. Even the browser menus and widgets are antialiased. I've put up a screen shot here: http://vocaro.com/antialiased-mozilla.png."

More experimental Xft builds are available from komodo.mozilla.org. Xft support is not currently enabled in the default Linux builds.

I also think the same way. It just makes fonts look fuzzy and uglier in my opinion. And I'm using 1280x1024 at 32 bit so low resolution isn't a problem here. My eyes are just more relaxed when looking at non AA fonts.
