    Is it just me or has Open Sans condensed been popping up everywhere? I've noticed it on Codecademy, Google Chrome app store, and even in a bunch of random blogs and blog comments sections, places that otherwise has fairly poor/basic designs.

    I've only noticed it since I upgraded to a late 2013 15" rMBP. Did my defaults get messed up somehow or did everyone just suddenly decide to use this super tiny font? Its like this on every browser I use.

    Open Sans is the FOTM font served up via google web fonts, kind of like flat web design, just typical trends.
