Mozilla XFT Revisited

Just for kicks, I decided to trying compiling Mozilla 1.4 final with XFT support built in for font antialiasing. Previous versions had worked, but some fonts ended up fuzzy or with bits missing. To top it all off, it was rather slow. Following these instructions, I compiled Mozilla. About an hour later, I had myself an XFT build. I'm rather impressed with it. Page rendering is much, much faster and much clearer. If you use Linux and haven't tried a Mozilla XFT build in a while, give it a spin.
