GTK+ Red Hat's David Zeuthen blogged today about the huge patch he submitted to GTK+ that will allow the toolkit to achieve resolution independence - widget and font size adapting to your screen's real estate; no more tiny application lost in the corner of your high resolution screen. Although more work is obviously required, Zeuthen's idea is to use RI as the hot-new-feature selling point of the upcoming 3.0 GTK+ release. Discussion is going on in the gtk-devel mailing list and there is an ogg video of the feature in action.

Unless you have sight problems


I don't and I wanna keep it that way but I read on-screen quite a lot and large fonts are a way to do that. If I let web pages render the way their retar.. errr designers want them to then most just waste 80% of the screen size on a white space at the right or ads/5000 sidebars anyway.
