Xft Antialiased Font Support Now Available in Linux
Saturday October 19th, 2002
"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.

Ouch. Those fonts _are_ horrible :)
From the screenshots at <http://freetype.sourcefor…reetype2/screenshots.html> , it looks like the KDE engine does it right (horizontals and verticals snap to exact pixel boundaries), where GTK does it wrong (blurs everything). Maybe gnome 2 works better?
