WhatFont: An Easy Way to Inspect Fonts in Webpages

Posted on July 19, 2011, under General, jQuery 

While we navigate through web pages we often see fonts that we really like and want to know the name of that font in case we would like to use it in our web pages. WhatFont aims in helping you get the font name when you hover the cursor over a text and image.

Getting the font name you want is just a click away. This tool not only saves you time but also detects services used for serving the font. Now supports Typekit and Google Font API.

It is available as a bookmarklet and has a Chrome/Safari extension.

Full support: Firefox 3.6+, Chrome 9+, Safari 4+, Internet Explorer 9.
Limited support: Internet Explorer 8.
