WhatFont Bookmarklet identifies fonts

what-font.jpg

If you like web design or you're just a little nerdy when it comes to fonts, you'll love the WhatFont Bookmarklet, the latest idea from computer science student Chengyin Liu.

There are countless web design tools available that give you specific, detailed information about the size, color and position of fonts in relation to other elements, but if it's just the name of the font you're after then this bookmarklet couldn't be more simple to use.

All you need to do is drag the little button up to your bookmarks bar, click to activate it, then everything you hover over will display the font name in a little grey box to the side. Magic.
