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.

Going by the sample screenshot posted in the original article above, the fonts are fuzzy. So please show me a screenshot of non-fuzzy AA fonts. I'd love to see it, since I've never seen non-fuzzy AA fonts that I am aware of. I'm willing to be converted if I can get non-fuzzy AA fonts.
