It appears that MO (including MO Meta) has recently changed the display fonts:
I couldn't find any topics on MO Meta pertaining to this new change, hence this question. SO has also switched the fonts, so maybe it's a platform-wide change. On the other hand, MSE still uses the older font from what I can see, so maybe the change is limited only to some of the sites on the SE network.
Personally, I find the older font easier on the eyes and overall more legible, but that could be only because I am so much accustomed to it. Of course, this is a matter of subjective preferences. The older font is bolder, whereas the font is more refined, if I may say so. For comparison, here is a current screenshot from MSE:
- Is the new font here to stay or is it merely an experiment to gather some feedback?
- Does MO really have to change the font? Does MO really need a new font?
Call me too conservative, but if it ain't broke and works well, it don't need fixin.
Feel free to change the tags, I am not well familiar with the MO Meta tags.
