    RR,

    Here's what I use on my dual 23" screens at 1920x1080 resolution.

    I think you'll need to consider screen size and resolution as they make a big difference in how things are displayed! HTH

    Hi RG

    the settings you have made are not being used, as you have the box 'Allow pages' etc ticked. Try with it unticked.

    Hi RG,
    I've been experimenting with various fonts styles & size settings on various forums, (where I do most of my surfing).
    First I go to the sites, set them to their default by pressing Ctrl + 0, then set for best look. I then set to size I want by holding Ctrl & turning the scroll wheel. This gives a different size on different pages.

    Compare this post with other members. I thing mine look better.

    RR, your post looks the same as 99% of the others in Windows 7 IE 10 or FF.

    I like Segoe UI because it has a good contrast/difference between 1/l/I, which is important to me. It also seems to be legible at almost any reasonable size.
