As a compromise over the recent release of titles, we've added the ability to set your title font faces and sizes just like the body and byline fonts/size options on the preferences page.

This feature will let you change the size (works best to decrease if you're in a smaller viewport), it will let you change font faces (works best when body faces are already customized), and also offers the option to hide them on front pages (of www, ask, metatalk) if you set the size to zero.
As always, preferences are cookie-based so this will work per-device at the moment you save your preferences page. So if you'd like the Plain Theme and no titles on your mobile device, you can set that and save it, and still have the default theme and titles on your desktop computer.
I do want to also take a moment and say that we made a change and didn't communicate it well beforehand. That's my fault and I'm sorry. Second, whether you love it or hate it, we're very appreciative of the feedback and thoughtful responses to the ideas in Monday's thread
. In the future, big changes like this will not be launched without communicating to the community first, floating ideas for feedback, showing mockups where appropriate, and getting more feedback before releasing to the site.
