The WhatFont Tool

There's no particular reason for me to post this today, instead of any other day, but I wanted to tell you about one of my favorite tools — WhatFont by Chengyin Liu. Install it in your browser. Click and see what typefaces a website is using. It's free. It's insanely handy. I use it constantly.

What is the easiest way to find out the fonts used in a webpage? Firebug or Webkit Inspector? No, that's too complicated. It should be just a click away. Hence I wrote WhatFont, with which you can easily get font information about the text you are hovering on.
