Hello everybody.
I am a new OS X user ( Mountain Lion ) i love this OS, and i have a few questions about this, please dont mind me.
First of all : is there a way to make the fonts looks more crisp / clear ? Especially under Mozilla Firefox. I use a lot, the internet browsing, so i would spend weeks if it´s necessary, to modify files, and so on. Why are they different looking as Windows OS ?
I tried with Tinker Tool but the results wasnt as i exppected to be.
Another question : are there any tools to let me modify the mouse settings ? I think the mouse is a bit slow on OSX. I want to improve the ¨pointer options¨ / speed /
I purchased a mouse with 1200 dpi, under Windows is pretty fast. Would you recommend me to but MacPilot software ? Would that help me for some other programs from OS X ?
What about the customization / settings of the graphic card ? Could i change the brightness / colors / saturation / gamma / contrast / digital vibrance, etc ??
Please give me some tips, guys. Especially for the fonts rendering.
Thanks a million, in advance.
Any advices / ideas / are welcome.

I think that is just the way fonts render on Mac OS rather then on Windows. You can disable it in Settings or tweak it with :
defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 1
I recommend SmoothMouse for the mouse issue.

Are the fonts looking better on a real MAC ? I mean the same resolution.
Thanks
