It seems that just because a couple of people fel like it, the 50+ year old Courier font has been revamped with a strong eye to not changing its dimensions but only to changing its legibility.
I have been working on my own nefarious serif font.. but I’m not sure the world is ready for it yet!
Developing with Courier Prime
I have been using this font as my coding font for the past few months, and have found it to be a quite agreeable monospaced font. Other devs have noticed I’m using a different font, so it must be a bit of a departure from common mono fonts.
