View Full Version : [xubuntu] To deactivate antialiasing in browsers?

Since the font antialiasing isn't very nice on the eyes no matter what settings I use, I decided to only use fonts that look well when not antialiased. For now, I've found Tahoma to be one of them, and am using it successfully as the system font.

BUT!

It seems like it doesn't apply in browsers (http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/1668/scr2j.png) (I've tried Firefox and Opera), where I'd like to use Tahoma & co. too. It bothers me, since everything looks fine in Windows (http://img687.imageshack.us/img687/9692/scr1z.png). Is there anything I can do about it?

Have you quit the browser since applying the change? Firefox doesn't update fonts (or some other theme settings) right away.

I have. (and anyway, it seems to me like the fonts actually ARE updated right away?)
