I just installed a nightly build of Mozilla 1.2b with anti-aliased fonts and I have to say it's very slick and as far as I can tell stable.

My friend hacked the classics theme to use anti-aliased fonts anf that completes the look.

I'm not sure if there's anything other than Redhat 8.0 rpms available, frankly I don't care either.

ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/experimental/xft/2002-10-22-22

Do an rpm -qa | grep mozilla and download the ones you have installed, then do rpm -Uvh mozilla*.rpm

For the theme you can get it here:
http://figz.com/~hexix/files/hacked-20021024-classic.jar
just move it to /usr/lib/mozilla-1.2b/chrome/ over write the original chrome.jar

Although you might not want to do this if you're using mozilla's mail and news, he didn't bother testing it.

I just figured I'd share this with everyone cuz I was so impressed with the improvement.
