    I had the high-res 15" MacBook Pro, but returned it because I didn't like the small fonts. Well, Facebook's new look has really small fonts. I'm actually not that bothered by them to be honest.. making me think that I could adjust to the high-res one day.

    Anyway, my question is, what does Facebook look like on the high-res displays now? The fonts much be even smaller now!

    Do default font sizes really matter anymore when a simple two finger gesture makes them bigger?

    I don't understand why Facebook would want to make the font in News Feed smaller. :rolleyes: :confused:
    Oh, I forgot Facebook was centered for widescreen monitors. I have a 4:3 monitor :(

    Two reasons.

    1) Increasing a font size on a webpage can cause the layout to be deformed.
    2) Increasing the zoom of a webpage as a whole causes images to be pixelated.

    If the website is properly formatted those problems shouldn't be an issue.

    Try it. We don't have a resolution independent web yet.

    1680x1050 here.

    The small font Facebook pages are okay when zoomed, but not perfect. You will find minor table issues and a few other things, but it shouldn't deter you.

    The tiny fonts in the browser tabs and the entire menu system will probably drive you crazy, though.

    I agree with you that we need Windows-style Large Fonts options.
