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.
#5 Cool, but they're not for everyone

I've tried Antialiased fonts a few times in the past, on a number of CRT and LCD screens, and I never could get used to the fuzzy, out of focus look. I still prefer the crisp look of plain fonts, and find them easier to read. My eyes don't keep trying to get them into focus.
