I’m never one to soften a polemic stance, so here we go.
“In page font resizers are bad. Bad usability. Bad accessibility. Bad design.”
-Tim Arnold 4/4/2014
There, I said it. I feel so free.
First, let me say that most websites I code have included a font resizer. I’ve been pushing back gently on some of the assumptions about what they accomplish and how successful they are at doing so but I think the time has some to be less gentle and take a more critical look at whether we are doing good or harm when we use these things.
