A bit of a crosspost - A recent change in the 'design' of Cascadia Code mono has rendered italic fonts to look cursive. When composing a post - the text area is in monospace. Specifically - when composing a post in the teams or "alpha" editor - using italics will result in text looking like this: The font used for monospace italics on Teams (when ...

The new fonts are grim on Mac Safari + Chrome - really terrible. Sorry - but the system UI font is just that: for my UI. Not for reading lots of text at speed. I can genuinely feel myself reading slower with the system UI font as compared to Arial. Yes, I realise they're both sans serif, but the UI is more difficult to read than Arial, end of. Maybe it's the ...

I am not an expert in fonts, their names and everything. But I am very upset to see Stack Overflow fonts were changed and everything looks very ugly to me now (Windows, Chrome). Below are screenshots. The posts are simply much harder to read now. Can you please return fonts back? Again, I am not an expert, so I don't know what to do to have them like they ...

Fonts are too light on Safari 14.1 on macOS So lots of chatter here, but will say this as a macOS Big Sur (11.3.1) user, the font weight is overall way too light in Safari. A simple comparison between how SuperUser renders in Safari 14.1 versus Firefox 88.0.1 shows the difference clearly on my side. Right side of this screenshot is Firefox and the left side ...

Would you consider removing -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased to make the text more readable?

Chrome on Mac seems wider now than the previous typography. The most noticeable change I am experiencing is the longer time it takes to read the text. I will give it some time if that would still be the case later on.

Why not using a font specifically built for readbility, such as Lexend for all platforms? https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Lexend

I didn't find any information on whether these changes are applied with A/B testing to validate them or not. Are they? (Please, don't tell me there is no A/B testing involved, and this random change went live without any knowledge of the change to website quality whatsover. What if the readability went down 50% for several million users, and just by total ...

bug stackexchange.com The font in the dropdown list of StackExchange.com - Top Users still contains the "Tahoma" font. All other places in the page contains the "Segoe UI" font. Screenshot for reference:

If consistency were the absolute goal, we’d ship our own custom font. I would love to be able to truly express our brand through a typeface, but that means users would have to download custom fonts and wait for them to display. We’d also have to cover international character sets. Displaying custom fonts is getting more realistic every day at our scale, so ...

bug firefox The bottom part of 'g' is partially visible in the home page of Mozilla Firefox browser, when the post contains one of the watched tag ("featured" is my watched tag) and the modified content is displayed in the next line. There is another post with "featured" tag, but the modified content is displayed in the same line, but ...

I'm not completely sure if it hasn't come up anywhere else, but to me the bold rendered text elements are too strong. They are kind of jumping into my face and trying to constantly draw attention to them. I would prefer them with a lower weight/strength. Not sure if this has changed though or if I just now realize it. Is there a way that I could fix this for ...
