I woke up this morning and went to login to the google AdSense [google.com] pages. I stared at the screen for a moment, wondering -- am I just not awake yet, or did google drop the point size on all fonts for some odd reason?

Everyone... get ready to start *SQUINTING*

I am there right now, and the font size is the same it has always been :)

Maybe some caffeine would help ~ usually does the trick for me ;)

hmmm cafffffiene jaaa!

But really, I looked again -- the fonts are squinty small in Mozilla... but seem to be OK in IE. So much for cross-browser CSS compatibility :P

Probably Google trying to make it easy for all those people making big money on Adsense. :) I noticed the font change in Netscape/7.02 though I thought it was due to something else.

You are right, I originally checked it in IE. When I went into Mozilla, it definitely has the squint-worthy micro-sized text on it.

It's definitely a Mozilla thing. Google must have made a change to its style sheet and checked it only on IE. I know the toolbar's IE-only, but otherwise Google's always been pretty good about avoiding assimilation into the Borg, running all those Linux boxes and all. Anyone else written them to complain yet?
