    Hi,

    The font has changed in safari on my iPhone 6S.

    Earlier today, I deleted my browsing history. When I went back into safari the font had changed.

    It now looks like something you would find on a Windows machine if you get me?

    Everything seems weirder, not necessarily bigger but words are bolded heavily in Google search.

    I haven't changed any settings or altered anything in accessibility.

    Anyone experience this before and know how to fix it?

    Just checked, nothing is bolder at all. The problem seems to be restricted to Google search results in safari

    I'll try, on my phone, not a comp.

    It's like I'm not in safari. It looks like Google if you were to search for something in Chrome.

    When I scroll to the bottom of a search page I'm given the option of choosing mobile or classic view - as if I was viewing Google search through a normal browser.

    Does that make sense?

    Could be that you are part of some bucket test for Google as they often have various different ones going where they display results a bit differently or try a somewhat different design or something else of that sort.

    I just tried safari on my wife's iPhone with the same search query. It looks nothing like mine. Her words are not in bold and she is not asked to sign in, choose mobile or classic view

    It's like I'm not using safari at all

    Ok, I'm definitely in Google mobile. There's a burger bar present in the top left of my Google search and when clicked it loads up Google Mobile featured apps.

    Weird.

    I think you may have turned off JavaScript.

    Settings > Safari > Advanced > JavaScript [ON]

    Fixed!!! You're a life saver! Thanks so much. So what is exactly happening when that's turned off (must have done it by mistake)

    Realistically something like that should have been affecting many more sites other than Google search results.

    I think it was. For example, when I loaded up Macrumors the mobile nav button didn't work. I had to go to Google search to type in Macrumors Forum.

    That happened on a few sites
