Default Fonts in linux

Hey i want to get some good fonts on my linux machine. I have Ubuntu 7. Can i have some cool features like "cleartype" in windows on linux? Also my firefox web browser shows lighter fonts (or so i feel!). I tried fiddling with the fonts in the settings but i dont think i have succeeded. i wanted darker fonts with a lighter background. All suggestions are welcome.
