"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.

At minimum, you need to install four of them: mozilla, mozilla-nspr, mozilla-nss, and mozilla-psm. The others are there if you want chat and mail support or want to recompile Mozilla.
