Have you ever seen a cool font online, and wondered what it is? I do—all the time.
For the past several years I’ve used WhatTheFont by MyFont, but the results can be hit-or-miss. Since you have to upload an image sample of the font and then browse a selection of “Matches”, it can also take a bit of time without any guarantee that you will actually find a match.
Then, a couple weeks ago, I discovered Fount by Art=Work, a free tool which will not only tell you what font you are seeing on any website, but will also give you the exact display size and font style (i.e. – light, regular, medium, bold)!
Just add Fount to your browser’s bookmark bar, and click it any time you want to know what you’re looking at–it’s that simple. Give it a try, and let me know what you think in the comments below!
