I should clarify my reply above. The browser most definitely has an option to choose which font it uses as a default, depending upon the OS it's installed on.

Nope, the OS is responsible for supplying the default fonts. In one case that I've tested, Firefox > 10 will render Courier New in place of Courier on Windows Systems -- probably because Courier is an old bitmap font which refuses to anti-alias.

Of consideration for future readers, the screenshots above show anti-aliased versions of Courier. It looks much different to users with font smoothing disabled.

comment Is it time to drop Courier from your monospace font stacks?
I realize there's probably no "right" answer. It's more of a comfort-level thing for me at this point. I've been adding Courier to my monospace font stack for so long, I find myself adding it out of habit nowadays. Curious what others think.
