    IE11 De-uglification & readability of Fonts and web sites


    Hi there.

    In my old age it seems IE11 is getting harder and harder to read properly -- never really noticed until I started using KONQUEROR browser (Open suse / Linux Mint on KDE).

    I'm getting older now and need larger fonts -- especially on Laptop screens -- looking at the SAME website (BBC London) on an HP sleekbook with a14 inch screen I know which is easier to read -- and while I can adjust a bit of text the menus don't seem to get very much enlarged in IE11, Also increasing the text size in IE11 starts rendering the website a bit crazily with bits appearing in the wrong place.

    (@ any website developrs --please get some of the over 45's to read your work -- some IT people I know always seem have HUGE screens with REALLY TINY fonts on them so their eyesight is obviously at a different level to ours !!)

    Cheers
