Yeah, maybe. I was just tinkering with it on https://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Open+Sans and setting a font to 16 made it look very tiny. But testing it in Codepen seems fine: http://codepen.io/senff/pen/CfGut
Open Sans is more readable and legible than Helvetica even down to 14px (see below).
I should stop talking about fonts and typography
That’s the opposite of how we educate ourselves. I’m glad people care enough to even post these questions or spend time to learn.
