Miha preview.tinyurl.co... Typography is just one facet of usability, and I'm disturbed by the fact that this is where supposedly design-conscious people are breaking new ground. I still remember back in my freshman year, the lecturer for our UI class presented us a webpage designed as if it were a Qt desktop application. Naturally, my peers cringed at the thought of the whole internet looking like that. A person even protested and said it "looked ugly." But it made me wonder. Desktop design of 90s was based on peer studies, not whimsical artistic moods, which basically killed any sort of uniformity in user interfaces.

Martijn I like uniformity a lot. Big promoter of Apple's HIG. On one hand I would love to see something like that for the web. On the other hand, I like how the web is just a canvas within the browser.
