    I use Georgia, a Serif font that is available free in TrueType font from Microsoft. It should be already installed on any recent windows box, and was installed on my OSX.

    I snagged it from MS and used it without a problem on a linux box with Xft truetype abilities.

    I hadn't thought to change the default font in Mozilla, but I've just changed it to Georgia, and the results are spectacular with OSX's font smoothing.

    Now I need to find a monospaced type that's just as clear. Right now both courier and Andale mono look hideous smoothed. The horizontal bar on a lowercase 'e' is a gray blur.

    • It sounds sad, but Monaco looks OK smoothed in Mac OS X. I don't know what this "OSX" is, though.
    • I've been using Lucida Console in putty and gnome-term for the past few years. Yes, it's from Microsoft, but it's a nice font to look at all day.
