Hmmm.. they seem pretty clear on my system (Firefox on a Vista system.) I'm using the improbable donator skin and the only Icon that i have any trouble with is the on/offline status bar. (I noticed that that icon is much clearer in Console skin)

Are you sure, Tor? Look more closely at the curves of the top-hat, for instance. It's only a matter of a few pixels, but at this small scale that's all it takes to produce a serious case of the jaggies.

I'm using the same skin in Firefox on a Mac... there's a reason that Macs still have an edge over PCs with professional graphics designers. Much less of an edge than there used to be, to be sure -- but for one thing, the display hardware is markedly clearer and brighter, making defects such as jaggies easier to catch.

Checking with my old XP system... I see that the damage is not nearly as obvious in the blurrier display. It's still there, though. The original as posted in the Enquirer is noticeably sharper and better looking.
