starbuck. : (01 February 2015 - 09:14 AM) okay, the explanation is that it's because it would be hard to browse the internet for visually impaired people but somebody could've said something somewhere about it <.< i mean, i at first thought that photoshop was at fault and displaying stuff smaller than it is but since i don't have a retina display that seemed highly unlikely and then i made a screenshot and measured a sig in photoshop from that screenshot and, yeah, it was at 120% <.< anyway, rant over xD
starbuck. : (01 February 2015 - 09:10 AM) if anyone remembers my stupid bizarre problem about blurry images - apparently my browser was displaying stuff at 120% for some reason <.< (and i tried two different browsers and both of them have done this, i mean whyyyy)
