Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro It's simple, beautiful, and stylish
Pro Great for your eyes
Monofur is very legible. Even after staring at it for hours, your eyes won't get tired.
Pro Letterforms are highly distinct
The font is very legible due to the distinguished characters it contains.
Pro Legible at extremely small point sizes
Tiny Font stands at just 4 pixels short (5 with descenders), yet includes every printable ASCII character.
Con Only characters from the Western charset work in many Windows apps
The font includes all characters for all European languages; however, in most programs using Unicode (such as WordPad or MS Word), only languages using Western charset can use this font. These include English, German, French, Spanish, and Norwegian.
Trying to use any languages like Czech, Hungarian (Central European), Bulgarian, Russian (Cyrillic), or Greek will make the font switch back to default font like Arial or Calibri, even though Monofur itself includes characters for those languages.
Authors didn't bother fixing the non-working Baltic / Central European / Greek / Cyrillic / Turkish character set for those years.
Con Lacks bold+italic
Monofur has a regular italic and bold typeface, but it lacks bold+italic. Syntax-capable editors can better display code based on function/class/context/markup work when at least 4 families are available to display.
Con Pointless to use this for legibility unless you're on an exceptionally small screen device
The tiny point size does not scale well. It's designed for a singular purpose and does well for that, but unless you're working around those limitations the poor readability will slow down your work.
Con Not as pretty as other fonts
Other options look better than Tiny Font at bigger sizes.
