MM - on firefox you will see the lettering is different to that of IE7, IE7 more clear and crisp you can see the different automatically if you use either...just wondered if it cud be changed, if not, I'll have to stick with IE7 as my main explorer..

I think I know what you are talking about. It's windows effect and not a firefox option.

Try this:
Right mouse click on desktop -> properties -> appearance -> effects.
And tell me which boxes are ticked.

My guess is that "smooth edges of screen fonts" is NOT set to "ClearType".

From news:comp.risks...

From: Jim Horning <xxx.xxxxxxx@xxxxxx.xxx>
Subject: Touch typing

I have long been a fluent touch typist. I consider Typing to have been the
high-school course that has been most useful during my professional career.

Early this year I started noticing increasing problems with my typing.
Sometimes characters would be dropped. As many as half of them.
[...]

The penny dropped yesterday during a frustrating session creating a new blog
post: I realized that the typing problem had started when I converted to
Internet Explorer version 7, with its feature of "tabbed browsing," which I
rather like. I typically have four to ten tabs open at any given time, more
when I'm looking for information and links to put into my blog posts. The
troublesome combination was typing into an IE form (e.g., the Blogger
editor) while having a large number of tabs open.

I quickly tested this by opening a second IE window with only a single tab
for Blogger, leaving the other window on the screen with all its tabs still
open. Glory be! I could touch-type at my old speed once again!

It appears that IE 7's input de-multiplexing routine is so inefficient that
it can't reliably keep up with a couple of characters per second when there
are more than about six tabs open, even on a dual-core Pentium D 3.40 GHz
processor with a 1 GB memory! This seems so preposterous to me that I'm
asking for other IE 7 users to do the experiment and let me know if they see
the same thing; alternatively, perhaps someone else can offer me a better
explanation.
