@gsplayer said in Serif? SERIF?!:
@flimbo Actually serif is easier for the human eye to read. That's why most newspapers have used it for decades. Only very recently in the computer age has sans become more in use because it's better on monitors. The fine detail of the serif can get lost at small size or low resolution.
Yeah, I know. I do web design and specialize in marketing/advertising because that's the only job you can get outside of teaching with a degree in Sociocultural and Linguistic Anthropology. That's why I said "For the last 20 years" in my original post. :P The only websites that still use serif fonts (with notable specific exception circumstances) are English language Asian sites because they evoke a typesetting that's closer to most Asian written languages. Even traditionally serif "professional" settings, like banks, have all switched to sans in US based websites at this point.
Hence, serif looks wrong and hurts my brain.
