    After reading this poll I disabled remote fonts through Firefox preferences and I'm enjoying the reading uniformity across sites; I'm just having a hard time choosing which fonts.
    What about you (the ones who disable remote fonts) ? Do you have a fonts preference?

    I just set them all to Arial.

    There may be better ones in the 20 or so default ones that are installed, I just haven`t bothered checking.....yet

    (Edit: quickly checked and sticking with Arial)

    I've never felt the need to change fonts, other than just zooming. Although sometimes I activate a Stylish sheet to make grey text black.

    I'm just glad there was a fix for that ugly Chrome font.

    I finally decided on Verdana, find it clear and simple.
    Thanks for the feedback.

    Haha lol, so did I! Only because you started this thread and I started fiddle around with different fonts and sizes, and I am yet to settle down with one. I have used Arial for the past 2 days...so we'll see :ouch:

    I use Franklin Gothic Medium 12. I don't like to squint.

    For Windows I use default fonts in chrome, however on linux the fonts are a different, I did not like or more accurately was not used to the native font rendering. So these are the fonts that I now use to resemble unity amongst browsing experience. I also use ublock to stop loading fonts for all sites except the ones I allow.
