Losing weight

Perhaps you’ve noticed already that this website is pretty ligthweight, at least compared to other, more “modern” ones. I decided to take this one step further and stop serving Roboto as the custom font for those pages.

From now on your load times will be increased and your bandwidth (and mine) will suffer no more the burden of transporting the impressive 167 KB of the TTF file. Though your browser was probably caching it and it isn’t that big of a deal, I think it’s a good decision nonetheless.

Most browsers allow you to change your fonts. If you think to yourself that the writing on those pages looks kinda ugly, maybe it’s time to finally settle on some good looking fonts that you prefer for all three families: serif, sans-serif and monospace.

Have fun!
