FWF

I recently discovered a Firefox extension called CustomizeGoogle. It's pretty neat. It's got all sorts of little tweaks for various Google services, but most importantly it allows you to use a fixed width font in Gmail. I can't emphasize how important this is. Variable width fonts and email simply don't go together. Why there's no option for fixed width font in Gmail by default is beyond me. Come to think of it, why variable width fonts in email services are legal in the first place is beyond me. Some things just shouldn't be tampered with.

  1. Itse en kyllä näe tarpeellisena monospace-fonttia sähköpostissa. Itsellä on luettavuus tärkeämpi juttu, ja itse ainakin "normaalia" fonttia pystyn paremmin lukemaan. Sähköpostissa nyt harvemmin koodia tulee.

    Lisäksi useat postit tulevat html:nä, joten se sitten korvaa fonttimäärityksen.
