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 Raster font
Always crisp and sharp, highly legible at even 8 pt. Excellent for low to normal dpi screens.
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 Ships in only two sizes
It only ships in 11px and 14px formats, which might not feel as comfortable to people used to other font sizes.
Con Bitmap only
Certain Cairo-powered apps fail to render them (e.g. sublime text is only available on a few Linux distros).
