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?

I have written all my hubs with my font size set to 22 and wonder now that with a more normal size they will not have the neat appearance that I designed into them.Can I get a few opinions on the appearance of this hub, along with the font size you are using on your browser? I realize that...

Is it just me, my increasingly poor eyesight, my browser, even my PC, or has the font size of the characters on many Hub Pages screens been significantly decreased? I notice it particularly in edit mode on Hubs but also on the Statistics page and even here on the forum. Until a week ago, I didn't...

I think I may have a problem with my display settings. I use firefox for my browser and have set my font size to 22, which is comfortable for my decrepit eyes. I have also designed all my hubs visually around this font size, never thinking that I would end up with white space when other...

My photos look very different after they are uploaded to Hubpages. They appear to be dull and unsharp. I am a commercial photographer so I do know the standards. Even though I had applied more sharpness and saturation to the photos than I would for the professional agencies, they still look...

What is wrong with Hubpages?I published a hub a few months ago without any problem and now it has been removed from publication because of "unrelated links." There are no unrelated links but I removed my Amazon capsule and links to other hubs on the same subject and now they are saying...

Is anyone else having trouble with the tiny font size in the text boxes provided by HP. This applies to the text boxes in the hub, the comments, and the answers.It looks like my eyesight is a little worse (I guess I am what you could call old.) I recent adjusted the font size for my computer, but...
