While surfing the net you come across lots of blogs with rather interesting and too beautiful fonts . With the exception of Times New Roman , Verdana and few others you might have tested in Microsoft Word , there’s very lil clue to digg more about that delicious font you might be interested in to use in your blog or preferably download it for Microsoft Office so that your project look more awesome !
WhatFont is Bookmarklet and also available as an extension for Chrome that tells you which fonts have been used on the site and it’s attributes. The WhatFont button appears when it’s installed .
- Click on the button and mouse over any font to find out which one it is.
- Right-click on the web page and the extension adds a small box that tells you all the font properties .
- Get to know the family the font is from, what font size has been used, the weight (whether the text is normal, bold or italic) and the line height.
- Easily identify and get complete details of all fonts used anywhere on a single page of a website.
However the extension does not identify fonts used in images .
The best way to
steal detect fonts and use it for your own use 😀 . One of the most cool extensions and a must for web designers and developers !
Great find Ajinkya!!!
I used to take much pains in finding fonts for particular websites. This tool is simply amazing and time saving. Thanks and the bookmarklet works great with Firefox. Got to know many new fonts.
Its good that bookmarklet is available for all browsers . After extension for chrome , i hope it all brings addons and plugins to firefox , opera and safari 😀
This is a good way to check what’s the font of selected test. But you also can using Firebug, a plugin for Firefox to check it.
Firebug is a good alternative if you are not using chrome because this WhatFont is available as an extension only in chrome . But if you use chrome than it’s damn easy to use this handy extension 🙂
really nice plug in ……..
but i prefer firebug…
I use Firebug myself and I haven’t really tried using anything else. This extension seems to be more user-friendly to me. I’ll check this out later. Thanks for the review. As always, you’ve been very helpful!
Touche. Sound arguments. Keep up the good work.
