Japanese default fonts have been changed

Published: | Categories: Miscellaneous


The browser’s default Japanese fonts on Windows have been changed with Firefox 55 Nightly and Firefox 57 on all channels, giving webpages a modern impression. The sans-serif font will be Meiryo instead of MS PGothic, while the serif font will be Yu Mincho instead of MS PMincho. MS Gothic remains as the monospace font. Meiryo doesn’t have the italic variant, but Firefox added a hack to make it italic when styled.
