Graphics, User Interfaces The Engineering 7 weblog has an item about the improvements made in the ClearType font rendering technology which has been included in Windows since Windows XP. While I won't go too deeply into that post, I did figure it was a good opportunity to talk about font antialiasing in general; which type do you prefer?

I can totally see it and it hurts my eyes. The smaller the fonts, the worse it gets when AA is turned on. Just look at some of the letters, they aren't even all black, some are much more lighter than others. You should especially notice that in the comment box on your screenshot. If not, then you might be lucky in some kind of way ;) but for me it's terrible, I'm glad that I can turn that off in Windows.


What browser are you using? did you actually MAXIMISE the screenshot? from the sound sof it, you didn't maximise the size of it - you kept it in its shrunken state.
