So I just upgraded to SuSE 8.2 with Mozilla 1.2, and installed my MS web fonts via YAST. Though it pains me, I have to grudgingly give MS some credit for Verdana. That’s a damn fine screen font.
Anyway, I fire up Mozilla, set Verdana as my default Sans-serif, and proceed to surf.
Mozilla 1.2’s antialiasing on true type fonts totally sucks. So bad that I’ve uninstalled all the core fonts from my system and stuck with the default Butt Ugly Helvetica. Which is bad enough in it’s own right, especially at small sizes, but nowhere near as nasty as Mozilla’s new renderings.
So can any of you Linux folk recommend a nice sans-serif screenfont that doesn’t require antialiasing in Mozilla? I imagine ttf is probably a bad idea, but I’m willing to give anything free or cheap a shot.
