A Chrome (and Safari) Plugin to Identify Fonts on Website

WhatFont is a chrome extension (also for Safari) which can be use to identify the font family being used on any site. In addition the extension shows font-size, color and the font rendering service too.

Till today you might have been using Firebug or Chrome developer tools to identify fonts. That’s a bit, I repeat only a bit lengthy process.
