Cleartype

Cleartype...

Just curious if people use it or not...

I use it, on a CRT but I've got it tweaked to use slightly less anti-aliasing and the contrast has also been adjusted to make it darker. :)

I use it on my laptop's TFT. It looks so much better! :)

I also use it on my desktop's CRT, and it definitely makes a difference. I can't go back to reading fonts without ClearType smoothing now.

For some reason the standard Cleartype in Windows XP looks blurry on my LCD monitor. But on my CRT I used it all the time. I will definately check out those 'hacks'.
A note, the MS Cleartype settings site (first link in SPeedY_B's post) only works with IE and with ActiveX on enabled.

Yip, I should have mentioned that, Microsoft being the zealots they are you can only adjust things on their o/s, using their browser, and you have to set low security too :rolleyes:

That is quite logical, since 1) (to my knowledge) only IE can use ActiveX controls and 2) these controls operate directly in the OS.

There are mozilla plugins for ActiveX, I don't know if they work though, and I don't really want to, I prefer to be secure ;)

There should have been an option within the operation system settings to alter the way which cleartype renders.
