We’ve stumbled across this very cool and free (everybody loves free) tool that allows you to easily find what font is being used on a web page.
Chengyin Liu, an undergraduate computer science student at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, has created what he calls the ‘WhatFont Bookmarklet’ When you hover your mouse over any piece of text on a web page, the font type instantly shows up.
For the full quick and easy low-down on how to get the tool working, visit Lui’s page HERE.
