For me it's crazy that so many people to this day use spaces instead of
tabs. Using tabs helps avoid all these issues of different preferences
and adds only one: indentation in text from the Internet always has to
be fixed rather than in half the cases, not that it really matters.
Many, many years ago I used tabs. I quit when I began to port code among
different editors, environments and people: it was a big, unreadable mess.
Now I only use spaces : what I see is what I see, everywhere.
 apart from makefiles, of course.
