Excellent point:

Readability isn’t simply a matter of large fonts and increased line spacing. And as the Times example reveals, there’s a lot more to consider than simply readability when considering how a visitor interacts with and navigates your site. But if your visitors can’t read your content, or the reading experience is suboptimal, does any of that other stuff really matter? The Times prioritizes readability in the new design, removing nearly all of the content that appears beside the text, allowing the visitor to really focus on reading, as they would with a book or a Kindle (a welcome trend that we hope to see much more of).
