    I've taken a screen shot from one of my own articles and from Wikipedia. Both tabs in the browser were at the same zoom level, so I was considering relative size rather than absolute size.
    Do you think the HubPages font weight is a bit light? I.e. Are letters too thin? Could the font size be slightly larger?
    Which is easiest on the eye?
    The first fragment is from Owlcation.

      I agree!  The HubPages font is very hard on old eyes like mine.

      I can barely read the one starting "if we turn the perabola..." and would certainly stop before the end (unless I remembered to magnify it).

    Not a fan of the font either. I have no problems reading it, but there are many other websites out there that have a much better, yet simple font. I personally prefer something like what Glenn has on Gaps https://gaps.com/seo-industry/ which is also better on the eyes than Wikipedia in my opinion.

    I agree with Brandon. The font is better, bigger on Gaps https://gaps.com/seo-industry/

    The size is reasonably ok on mobile devices. On desktop however it's a bit small on modern displays which have a resolution of maybe 2000 pixels in the horizontal direction. It's easy to zoom a page in a browser, or even zoom the text, while keeping other elements on the page the same size. How many readers know how to do this though and do many just hit the back button if they have difficulty reading text? Could the font size be set to be a proportion of the view window size rather than a fixed size?
