It’s probably just me – I know that most designers prefer firefox…

But firefox is ugly!

When you view a site in firefox, the rendering of the text is just horrible, i FAR prefer the look and feel of websites in IE.

Is it just me? :)

Yeah I had a feeling I might be in the minority :D

I tried the zoom reset, no joy :).

Here’s an example – perhap’s it’s a setting as someone suggested – although I’m using Windows XP:

The first is ie8, the second is FF – text looks dreadful.

Perhaps there’s a cleartype add-in or something? :)

motlive just posted some nice resources

If that doesnt work you can always try using another browser: chrome, safari, even opera… just don’t tell us that you prefer ie. :)

Aha!

Well then I’ll stick with IE, it renders these sites better :p

I checked a few others, bbc.co.uk etc, and I get the same thing.
