re: Thank you for using a proportional font. Down with monospace!
 

Why don't you like monospace? Genuinely curious.

 

Proportional fonts have better aesthetics as they better match the way letters evolved and how we see them in day-to-day life. They occupy the "right" amount of space instead of being crammed into, or stretched into a fixed cell: compare "m" to "n". I can read proportional text faster, with less eye strain.

Now with Unicode, and wide spread prevalence of international characters, and emoji, the issues with monospaced have become more pronounced.

Oh, and yeah, monospace leads to people doing stupid formatting in their source code.
