    • This issue still exists in IE11 (and possibly 10). Refer to the following link:

      The “1” is rendered twice as big in IE11 as opposed to all other browsers which render properly.

    • As Darren commented we are seeing this issue even now as on September 7th, 2017. We in our application are heavily dependent on font icons, all the fonts looks big compared to other browsers. In my case i have two different stylesheets with same selector for pseudo selector(:before), ideally only one of the styles has to be applied overriding other but ie multiplies the font-sizes from every style sheet of similar selector which is annoying
