The text on Stack Exchange suddenly seems much thinner and weaker than before. Other websites and text appear to be normal.

Is it just me?

Stack Exchange switched from using a specified font in their stylesheet to using your browser default system fault on May 10, 2021. This would indeed change the appearance of the text on this site.

We are switching to system fonts on May 10, 2021
