I seriously hate large fonts.

I want them to be as tiny as possible.

I'm not joking, I'm willing to squint in order for there to be more
information on the screen at once.

But I think this goes deeply into personal tastes, so it would be
nice if the user could pick something in settings to guide this.
And please don't tell me to have a custom CSS sheet to deal with
this.  That works for some people, which is fine, but don't think
that's generally a way to achieve usability.
