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?

Saffron, OS X, Ubuntu Freetype, Windows - in that order. I find Windows less readable. There's so much edge vibrance, it hurst my eyes after a while. I don't know why people keep saying it's better for screen, it simply isn't.

If anyone is unfamiliar with Saffron, it is the text engine introduced in Flash Player 8, and updated in Flash Player 10. It's used other places too.
