Reviewing default web font in regards to aesthetic aspect


#1

Perhaps I’m ignorant to the reasons behind it, but it seems as though the default font for the current web browsers is not targeted to the user base. Not sure about the benefactors.

Would it be possible to update this to more accurately reflect the contemporary usage of the Internet, relative to the actual user base?


#2

Do you mean that current serif default font should be changed to a sans one? Or to a different serif?

By the way, serif fonts look much better (and maybe even preferrable over sans) on HiDPI displays (e.g. 4K monitors.


#3

So I take it you are reading this message in 12 point Times New Roman?


#4

This site has a nondefault font applied (Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif). It’s still unclear what exactly the topic is about.


#5

Fair enough. Tentatively disregard.
