I'm currently switching between Terminus size 24 and 28 trying to
figure out which I prefer.

Most things are tiny, however some text is too large (e.g. titles in
tabs). I recompiled chrome in an attempt to figure out the
experimental hidpi mode but I haven't had any luck. Zooming in on a
page helps, but then all elements are big and the page doesn't seem
reflow as it should. Same is true for using surf's zoomto96dpi
setting. As such I'm spending most of my time between 150% and 200%
zoom with dwm in monocle mode.
