Seems neat, but I'm wondering if this was the reason why my CTR was falling the last 25 days or so. All my ads are set on default.

Anyone seen any changes in their account CTR or what not?

Please keep in mind that this change will only affect ad units which have “AdSense default font family” and “AdSense default font size” selected.

Maybe it's time to change.

I noticed a big drop in CTR in December. I'd always used the default, and prior to December it had seemed to fit in with the rest of the site
When I looked at the site in December and this month, the font size for the ads seemed huge in comparison to the rest of the site (like Verdana medium vs Arial small), which made the whole site look rather schlocky (sorry - best description I would think of)
Not sure if this is related, but I'm going to specify the font size and see what happens.
