identify fonts used

WhatFont is a browser bookmarklet that helps you quickly determine the font style used on any website. Once you visit a site, click on the bookmarklet after the page loads. After you click, you can hover the mouse pointer over any part of the website and the font style will be displayed in an overlapping black window, as in the image above. You can do this for any textual part of any website.

To disable the bookmarklet, look for the “Exit WhatFont” button that will appear in the top right of the webpage once you click on the bookmarklet.
