Anti-Aliasing Tuner

Author(s):



"Anti-Aliasing Tuner" is a simple add-on which can customize various Direct2D/DirectWrite text rendering parameters.

Note:
   * If you select "Dont' Care" in "Anti-aliasing Mode", Anti-Aliasing Tuner does nothing for "Normal Font" but only modifies Firefox native rendering params "gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.*".

Requirement:
   * Windows 7 / Vista+Platfome Update, 32/64bit
   * Direct2D/DirectWrite enabled Firefox 8 or later, 32/64bit

Options:
   * Gamma
      The gamma value used for gamma correction. Set gamma value * 1000. Default is 2200 (= gamma 2.2) or 1800 (= 1.8) typically, but depends on your environment.

   * Enhanced Contrast
      The darkness of text. Valid value range is from 0% to 100%. Zero means no contrast enhancement. Default is 50% typically, but depends on your environment.

   * ClearType Level
      The degree to which the red, green, and blue subpixels of each pixel are treated differently. Valid value range is from 0% (meaning no ClearType, which is equivalent to greyscale) to 100% (meaning full ClearType). Default is 50% typically, but depends on your environment.

   * Anti-aliasing Mode
      Don't Care:   Firefox native mode
      Default:   automatically, according to Rendering Mode
      ClearType:   sub-pixel anti-aliasing
      Greyscale:   black-and-white anti-aliasing
      Aliased:   no anti-aliasing

   * Rendering Mode
      Don't Care:   auto select by Firefox
      Default:   automatically, based on the font and size
      Aliased:   no anti-aliasing
      GDI Classic:   glyphs can only be positioned on whole-pixel boundaries
      GDI Natural:   same as GDI Classic, but metrics are closer to ideal
      Natural:   anti-aliasing in the horizontal dimension only
      Natural Symmetric:   anti-aliasing in both horizontal and vertical dimensions
      Outline:   bypass the rasterizer and use the outlines directly

   * Threshold
      You can apply different settings to different size fonts.

Known Issue:
   * Text may disappear in some cases.
   * You may not get the desired result for "Large Font".
