You might be tempted to use the full capabilities of your browser to do things such as font-smoothing, but it’s not a good idea as it is often overused and the Browser/OS will generally do it’s best.
Both Firefox and Safari have support of this CSS attribute as follows:
NOTE: If you’re using something like Glyphicons (included with Bootstrap) you might have some use for this because of the way that fonts are used for icons.
Ubuntu continues to make great strides with improvement to the User Interface for the ‘common’ user. Unfortunately this sometimes comes at the cost of security. 12.10 added a “Guest” account to the launch screen, to allow a new session to be opened. This is not always useful as it represents a potential security concern.
A single line command and reboot will remove it:
sudo sh -c 'echo "allow-guest=false" >> /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf'
Similarly “Remote Login” can also be hidden/removed.
sudo sh -c 'echo "greeter-show-remote-login=false" >> /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf'
WARNING: This will cause some problems in 15.10 (and likely some earlier versions before). See the following for the new method.
sudo sh -c 'printf "[SeatDefaults]\nallow-guest=false\n" >/usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-no-guest.conf'
