    It used for LCD screens and makes the font sharper. I use it on my desktop LCD (Samsung 152T) and notebook LCD (Acer Aspire 2000). Check out:

    Go to the Clear Type web interface.

    Is there any difference in using the web tool compared to just clicking on "cleartype" in the effects box when you right click on the desktop and go properties>apperance>effects ????

    It's not just for LCD's its for any computer monitor, it just crisps the text more by using a little of the graphic cards AA.
