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 tend to prefer a slight anti-alias; but at the end of the day, I just want to read text, not make love to it. So as long as the text is easy to read, then that's good enough for me.

Same goes for the fonts used. Over the years I've seen some poor, non-standard choices of fonts on some applications / websites. A choice that was clearly picked for aesthetics rather than readability.
