Fito added a comment to T90948: Identify the best diff style and use it everywhere.

Besides the colors, I just wish that we had never added those absolutely hideous-looking, space-wasting, rounded boxes around each single line of text in the diffs. Can we take this opportunity to do away with them?

Fito added a comment to T155361: Give some color to the caret in text fields.

Will you consider mobile usage? For example, WhatsApp uses a colored caret. With this, I don’t believe that users will be freaked out by a colored caret.

Fito added a comment to T156428: WikimediaUI Style Guide - 300 font-weight makes the content text harder to read.

You don’t really need a screenshot, and the OS I use doesn’t really matter; it’s common sense to use text weights/faces for body text and display/light weights for display settings. Unfortunately, using thin, small text has become yet another moronic trend in web design. Sorry for being blunt. Anyway, here are some screenshots of a couple of sites I’ve visited within this hour that have this issue…




Designers shouldn’t punish non-Retina users…

Fito added a comment to T156428: WikimediaUI Style Guide - 300 font-weight makes the content text harder to read.

Agreed that it’s too thin. I’m afraid too many designers are wrongly using lightweight faces for body text due to the “fattening” effect of their macOS renderers…

Fito added a comment to T114885: Mobile should equip blockquote with language dependent quotation marks.

I think the indentation quote style is more universal than the quotation marks. it's a good typographical element to bring contrast and convey meaning.

Fito added a comment to T155361: Give some color to the caret in text fields.

@Volker_E: Mere aesthetic value? That was why I suggested this, of course. I was thinking that the caret could be made to match the color of the focus frame drawn when you click a text field, e.g., when you log into a wiki.

The bug is actually in Skia. Chrome has worked around the bug in version 50.

Restricted Application updated subscribers of T74515: Default CSS rule (loaded from ‘load.php’) uses “Linux Libertine” font for headings, thus misses “Linux Libertine O” installed on Ubuntu..

The problem is more complicated nowadays, since a new Libertine variety has emerged, and which changes the face’s name again (dropping the “Linux” portion due to trademark issues): Linux Libertine O becomes Libertine Serif. I expect this fork to be the replacement of the well-known Linux Libertine O for many users, because the original fonts have long-standing issues and their developer, Philipp Poll, is MIA (thus, this fork).

Restricted Application updated subscribers of T68698: Vector "More" dropdown arrow has strange click behavior.

What about switching the down-arrow icon for an actual pin, instead of relying on an obscure and unclear animation to convey the “pin” behavior? Before finding this bug report (sorry, “task”), I also thought the animation was a bug.

Fito added a comment to T73240: Re-evaluate serif font stack for headers.

@kaldari: No, I don't think Windows 10 implements anything like automatic font substitution. Georgia Pro is not even installed by default (in order to save space), but you can easily get that (along other updated families) by going to Settings and selecting the "Pan-European Supplemental Fonts" package.
