A reader foams at the mouth:
You see, I set up Mozilla Firefox so that the default font is Verdana 18 point, because that’s a size I am comfortable with, being a quintedecarian. Then all these WWW graphic designers say, “The default font for most of the browsers in the world (ie. Internet Explorer) is too large and clunky, rather like the sort of thing old people like to read, so I’m going to set my body style to 80% of that (or whatever to make it small and elegant and youthful.” Thanks a lot, guys. As a result I look at your blog, along with many other sites, with the Page Style suppressed.
So… here is your chance to vote (in the comments section I suppose). Is the font too small? Should it be set bigger? Should it just leave you with whatever your browser defaults to? I’m not quite sure how the site/browser interaction works, anyway.
Incidentally, I was poking through the stats yesterday, and the most popular browser at this site is Firefox.
[Top tips (i.e. ones not involving me having to change my .css) so far:
- “Control =” or “Control +” (Control-Shift-=) to increase font size
- The Read Easily firefox plugin
- Read via RSS :-)
