In Firefox my chrome text isn't anti-aliased.

Is this due to Windows Vista's font settings?

What text? In the chrome or on the pages? –  Ivo Flipse Jan 21 '10 at 20:45

I would recommend checking this HowToGeek article on ClearType to tweak your settings and to make it the way you want it to be

Tune Your ClearType Font Settings in Windows Vista

Many people have expressed to me their dislike of the default ClearType font smoothing in Windows Vista, and asked for a way to change the settings to something better. You have a couple of options here:

  • You can just Disable or Enable ClearType. (Note that if you are still using a CRT monitor, you should not be using ClearType anyway.)
  • Install Microsoft’s ClearType Tuner PowerToy for XP (which works in Vista, even if it says it doesn’t)
