    Unsanity has released Silk 1.0 a "haxie" that enables AA in carbon apps.

    check it out

    very cool, and the site is nice too. Have you used any of their other shareware? Does it expire after a certain amount of time?

    Looks great!!! Finally IE looks more...well, "silky"...hehehe :D

    It would be nice if the text in the address bar was AA as well...kind of an eyesore...

    i bought fruitmenu recently. it doesnt expire. it is reminderware. but the reminder is very infrequent. i used shadow killer and windowshade to test them out but didnt think they were very good.

    i buy very few shareware apps. most of the time i think the app feels to beta-ish to pay for or the asking price is too high, but unsanity does a good job so i picked up fruitmenu. but silk is free. its nice that a company knows which apps should be free and which to charge for.

    ok sorry for the double post, but i just got to say im totally digging AA in mozilla, sure we had it before with the mach-o builds but having mozilla 1.0 and aa is way cool.

    Hey, it really does make a huge difference! After installing it, i thought for a moment i'd launched omniweb by mistake :rolleyes:

    Freeware... i love it!

    Wow.

    Very impressive. No speed cost. Looks great. And it's FREE!

    Wonder why Apple didn't do this themselves...

    Update: After trying this for a little while, I am very pleased. I feel like I am finally getting one of the features I paid for in OS X in all applications. Things just look much slicker. I think I have noticed a slight speed difference in M$ Office apps, though. Hard to tell since they're so friggin' slow, anyway--I could just be imagining it. Since they don't need Silk, I will exclude them and see if it makes a difference.
