Readability wins over retro styling; Georgia replaces Courier for our body copy
After launching our redesign a few weeks ago we received a lot of feedback about the choice of Courier for our body copy. While we loved how the retro aesthetic provided a nice contrast to the crispness of the layout, many readers felt it was a strain on the eyes. We then posted about this asking for opinions on Courier vs. Georgia vs. Times and based on your feedback combined with our preferences we landed on Georgia which you'll notice has now replaces Courier throughout the site.
Thanks to all of you who shared your thoughts on this, we really appreciate your feedback!
