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.
I always keep selected that option, but it only seem to work, when the fonts are big. The tiny ones appear without the smooth.
For example, the font Arial, start to appear smooth at the size 18px. This, in the Internet Explorer and the Mozilla browsers, but in Adobe Acrobat, the all sizes fonts appear smoothed; a feature i do like very much and of course i would like that Mozilla has it, and my entire desktop too.
