Me likes IE8 text/look better - it's more compact - you guys notice a difference? How do i change Firefox so that it looks like that?

The fonts look the exact same between the two browsers, however Firefox is not displaying text in ClearType. IE renders in ClearType whether you have it installed or not, Firefox on the other hand (unfortunately) does not so.

You can download ClearType as a solitary application and install manually from here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/...mspx (download link on the right-hand side). This powertoy will be effective system-wide, so your task bar text, icon titles, file names, fonts and so on will render in ClearType. You can adjust the visual settings through installation and return to them as often as you see fit.

Other than that, it appears that both your IE8 and Firefox are using the same font.

Also, I can justify why this isn't technical support.

It's not that IE8's fonts look better, they just force ClearType onto the screen.

Go to your desktop, right click, Properties, Appearance tab, Effects, click on the second pull-down menu, click ClearType, OK, and Apply. Poof! Now all the text in XP is smoothed out. If that doesn't work, go here.

Myriad Pro is like the bestest font everz, but it isn't in my budget :( ! And I can't find a similar free version!

Go to Adobe's website, download the newest version of Reader, install it, C:\program files\Adobe\Reader [v#], and search all the folders for their "hidden" resource fonts, find Myriad Pro (Regular, Italic, Bold, and Bold Italics), and copy them to Windows' font folder.

Boy, I'm just full of tutorials today, aren't I? :)

Rant: I just got my braces off, and now it's retainer time. Dang, these things hurt, and I can't talk. I had retainers when I was way younger, so I can't remember, but does anyone know how long it takes for you to get used to your retainers to be able to talk without having a lisp?

Every time I take the retainers out, my gums start bleeding. It's fun.

Yeah, I hate braces. Don't know about retainers, I'm not at that stage yet. My brother was fine wearing retainers though, and I don't think he had a lisp ...

And his gums definitely didn't bleed, because if they had, he would have complained. Loudly. He's a whiny kid.

I had my braces adjusted yesterday. It took 1 1/2 hours, and then my teeth hurt like hell. There was this special wire with little metal hooks sticking out of it that dug into my gums.

Call me expired. Please.

It never hurts while they're working on it.

I always hurts a few hours after, and it lasts for a few days. Unless they make you wear the rubber bands. Then it lasts forever. :(

RANT: For some reason, Firefox 3.0 just stopped responding. This wouldn't be so bad if there weren't any consequences. But there were. When restarting it, It simply doesn't display. There seems to be a process running, but nothing's happening. It can't be a Virus, as I scanned the whole folder, and reinstalled it twice. Now I'm back to trusty 2.0.0.14.

"I'm bored of my user name" is a really lame excuse.

AND, if the user names you wanted to change to weren't so silly... :D

I HATE* my username but I won't ever change it (unless maybe we moved to forum.getpaint.net). Too many people know it and recognize it, and it would make infrastructural problems and I would have to tediously edit my googlepages, maybe make a new dA etc. I don't see much point in changing your username (except for Mike and Olli's case, because they weren't necessarily bored of their username)

*That word hasn't served me well before (*cough* some of you know why), but I really mean it this time 'round.

EDIT: And I'd rather have admins & mods banhammering trolls and spammers.
