Better fonts for Fedora
fontconfig-font-replacements provides free substitutions for popular
proprietary fonts from Microsoft and Apple operating systems.
It makes your web browsing more aesthetically pleasing - you won't be seeing DejaVu Sans font on every damn webpage.
Subpixel (rgb) antialiasing
Default for Fedora are slight hinting and grayscale antialiasing.
Some people find subpixel antialiasing to look better - others can't stand color fringing caused by it. If you want to try it for yourself install
fontconfig-enhanced-defaults package. You can also enable it manually
Gnome Tweaks or by running following command in terminal:
dconf write /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/xsettings/antialiasing "'rgba'"
to change back to grayscale (default) antialiasing:
dconf write /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/xsettings/antialiasing "'grayscale'"
