> I’ll break the bad news to you up front: you have to stop worrying about what happens when people resize their browser. First of all, no one does this. Yes, YOU like to resize your browser and watch DOM elements bend to your will—and so do I—but real-life regular people users don’t. And of course it’s not even possible on mobile and tablet devices.

Thank god someone finally brought this up.

Indeed. Unfortunately, I can't actually read the text on this site because it doesn't resize when I use my browser's zoom controls.

Forget resizing browsers, let me resize the text!

Sorry about that! It's fixed now. That was a mobile-specific style that I'd accidentally applied globally.

Thanks! You probably don't get many higher res (2560x1440) visitors. :)

Fun fact: I actually have to zoom in 3 times to make HN readable from a normal viewing distance. Yes, 9pt fonts in 2012.
