deborah: the Library of Congress cataloging numbers for children's literature, technology, and library science (Default)

This trend I'm seeing for massive fonts -- 22 pixels on Medium, 20 pixels (computed from 3.0625 em!) on Boston.com, when my default size is 13 pixels -- is driving my up the wall. I have my screen set to a certain resolution and my fonts at a certain size which I find readable. When the main body text is that much larger than my comfortable reading range, I have to shrink the heck out of my fonts to be over to cope, and then increase them again when I'm done.

I have my browser set to a comfortable reading size. Why are all these sites assuming I don't?

I hate that so much!

It's even worse than "we made a site wider than your window but intercept left and right arrow to mean 'next' and 'previous' article." Feh.

I honestly have no idea why they do this.

Also: sites (like boston.com) that intercept control-click (or Command-Click on Macs) so that instead of opening in a new tab, just open in the same tab. I hate that.

Ugh, that sounds incredibly frustrating.

In my browser at least (Firefox on OSX), text size changes (with cmd + or -) are remembered for the site in question, but don't affect other sites, which open at my default size. I don't suppose your browser can be convinced to do anything similar?
