Our old default was 14px, now it’s 15px. All text will look slightly larger.
There’s some evidence that larger font sizes increase readability, and larger font sizes are generally becoming more common across the web (you can easily find some sites that are making body text as large as 20px!). So this is a minor bump in that direction.
I hate it
That’s ok. Visit https://meta.discourse.org/my/preferences/interface and select “Smaller” from the text size dropdown.
