On October25′th I have written about Microsoft Powertoys a free software package for Win XP users. Package included ClearType Tuner on which I shortly commented following:
ClearType Tuner: by using ClearType technology this tool can make it easier to read text on your screen. I installed it and the difference in the quality of text is remarkable. For now I am quite satisfied with it, but I wonder how will I feel about it in a week, will keep you updated on it.
So right after installing it I was quite impressed with what it did to the text. But then I was not quite sure if I still would be happy with it after a week or so. Now that I have used it for almost a week I can say for sure it’s a cool powertoy and recommend it to everyone.
Update (Nov 1′st):
Based on the feedback, it seems that it works good with LCD screens (excluding high-end ones that already include this type of tunning). Some people with CRT screens reported no difference at all, and in few cases the text became blurry.
