A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

Bill Hill on IE7 Cleartype

I have read and listended to a lot of what Bill Hill has discused and I respect his opinion a lot.

He has made a post about the decision to turn on Cleartype in IE7 Beta 2. I recommend that if you read the post if you want to learn more, but to soundbite [or rather "lift"] from the blog entry.
The decision to turn ClearType on by default in IE is unusual, but was made because solid research over the past few years has shown conclusively that it improves reading - the task at which IE users spend most of their time.


I have not noticed any problems with cleartype, I find it easier to read text that is cleartyped, for some reason I concerntrate more. I have however, noticed problems with Blogger [and other sites] with IE 7 Beta 2 rendering the pages correctly.
