How many do or don't change theirs is unknowable, and, more importantly,
shouldn't matter. The fact is most people accessing web sites are using
personal computers that include the ability to personalize such things as
text size as they see fit and/or find necessary. To presume that something
other than their defaults are somehow better for them in their different
environments because you like it better in your own environment is
enormously rude.
