Default changing Firefox's font(s)?

Hey, guys!

I'm contemplating whether to change the font(s) used by Firefox. Do any of you guys have any suggestions as to what font is good to use?

Thanks!

For FreeBSD, try webfonts. For other (?), try Liberation fonts.

Here's what I can point you to (assuming FBSD; otherwise google):
Code:
> cd /usr/ports/x11-fonts/webfonts && cat pkg-descr
Code:
> cd /usr/ports/x11-fonts/liberation-fonts-ttf && cat pkg-descr
Read those and compare.
