Are you checking out a website and a certain typeface catches your eye? You want to know what it’s called so that maybe you use it in one of your own projects in the future. But how can you tell?
If you don’t want to squirm through the webpage code to find out, there is an easier way to do this, and it’s called Fount. All you need to do is go to their website and drag the “Fount” button into your bookmarks. Done! Next time you are on a webpage and want to know what web font they are using simply click on the Fount link in your bookmarks bar and then select the text whose typeface you want to identify.
Fount works on several major web browsers, like Firefox, Chrome, Safari and IE.
