If you go into System Preferences>Appearance>Font Smoothing Style, You'll see a drop down menu with different choices. I think the best looking font smoothing type is "Standard - best for CRT". I've tried all the other styles and they don't look good to me. I think the other styles look too sharp, too bold and I don't like colored pixels around the edge of my text. By the way, in Snow Leopard, there's only 2 options now. It's just a checkbox that says: [ ] LCD Font Smoothing When checked, it acts like "Medium - best for flat panel" and when unchecked it acts like "Standard - best for CRT" What is your favorite font smoothing style? Note: For changes to take effect, you have to quit and relaunch your apps to see the difference.
