    Been a Verge reader since "This Is Your Next"... But this is really bothering me. Why can't they seem to nail body text styling? On the previous design it was way too thin, who's bright idea was it to use Light weight at 17px before?

    Now it seems too bold and bulky. They're using Helvetica at 18px but it seems as big as Mediums body text of 21px. It's annoying to read, how can they overlook such an fundamentally important part?

    Overall it's an uplift, but couldn't say I'm 100% onboard.
