It strains the eye and makes reading those web pages a tedious chore. I am referring to the CIA World Factbook and many others like that. This trend is not old, but a recent (as in the last 3-4 years) phenomemon.

Just out of luck if you have an iphone (why, apple, why????) I did this all the time with my old phone, but just last weekend, someone wanted to share a photo with me, and ofc had to say it doesn’t work with the iphone. Now I have to wait till maybe the get it on a pc and then send it :(
