If you're using Mac OS X 10.1.5, get Silk: it patches Carbon apps to enable the new hinted Quartz anti-aliased rendering. I've found a few glitches involving text highlighting, which explain why Apple doesn't enable it system-wide, but overall it works very well, especially in Mozilla.

I'm glad Apple found a way to preserve font metrics while enabling antialiasing, but it is a bit strange to see the unhinted and hinted versions onscreen at the same time.
