Hey Folk

I just did a test run for IE 7.0 - nothing too special... It all seems
to be working pretty well, nice design.  However, the fonts are
amazing.... That is really a huge change.  It makes your PC look like a
MAC.  The fonts are anti-aliased?  This is really a design thing and
not a technical issue, so I am not sure if I should discuss here, but I
just wanted to express my excitement about this... Will my beloved FF
do the same thing?  The crazy thing is that Outlook does the same thing
so it is really something that is deeply embedded in windows.  Having
said that, I dont see it in any other programme....

Let me know what you think...

AFAIK this is ClearType which is enabled in IE7. It's also available for all
other apps, but you'll have to enable it manually (don't ask me how, I'm a
Linux user...).

See also (which I
didn't read in detail).

Indeed. All my browsers have had anti-aliased text for years -- even Lynx.
