I was running a validation on PageSpeed Insights and noticed it flagged HB for having fonts that are too small. Yeah, probably true, so I've boosted the default font from a tiny 10 pixels to a luxurious 12 pixels.

I mention it here because it may cause formatting problems. Please let me know if you see anything odd layout-wise.

Can we get an option to change it back in "Change text size"? It looks like it can make fonts bigger but not smaller.

I prefer smaller text and less scrolling.

With very little testing, I added "small" along with default/big/huge. For those who are curious, the prior default was identified as an accessibility issue, presumably because it was hard to read, especially on mobile phones.

Thanks! Looks the same as it was before the change of the default.

Changing the default makes sense, but so does having the smaller option.

Seems to me like even small is bigger than it was before, but what do I know?

I never noticed the change. I use <ctrl+> and <ctrl-) to change the size on my confuser :wink: .
