One pattern I notice and dislike is the increase of average font size on the web (and in OSes), and the overall decrease in density of information. BBC 10 years ago vs now side by side shows the difference [1].

Don't forget that screen resolutions were lower on average back then, which means that the side-by-side comparison doesn't really account for relative scale.


I don't think the BBC is doing that bad, but I do notice allot of sites these days do look huge on my 15" MBP, and you have to scroll a tonne to see very little. Though these sites usually work pretty well on my 27" iMac, I feel like no one makes responsive sites anymore.

Ads take a lot of space on current BBC capture.
