The easiest way to identify fonts on web pages.

Image from store WhatFont
Description from store What is the easiest way to find out the fonts used in a webpage? Firebug and Webkit Inspector are easy enough to use for developers. However, for others, this should not be necessary. With this extension, you could inspect web fonts by just hovering on them. It is that simple and elegant. It also detects the services used for serving the web fonts. Supports Typekit and Google Font API. Recommended by Wired WebMonkey, Lifehacker, and SwissMiss.

  • (2020-04-03) React: letter-spacing is a missed feature in this extension.
  • (2020-03-28) TARSIS LIMA DE ANDRADE: Muito fácil de usar. Basta clicar no botão WhatFont (f?, na barra de extensões) e passar o mouse na palavra. Obs.: após a instalação, é preciso apenas recarregar a página para começar a usar.

  • (2020-03-09) Fung Siu: Very accurate. I spent days trying to find out what fonts a famous website uses and got some answers. Now this extension confirms right away those answers were correct.
  • (2020-02-27) Сергей сын Ивана: Примного благодарен автору за проделанный труд! Очень удобное приложение, экономит массу времени при работе с дизайном заказчика. Респект!
  • (2020-02-15) Alise Belcher: Works perfectly for me but I thought it would be an identifier such as What The Font. Not sure if I'll use it because I generally pull up Inspect to read a page's code or CSS sheet.
  • (2020-02-05) Krupesh Anadkat: Always helpful!
  • (2020-01-28) 酸菜小鱼: 太棒了,每次看到喜欢的字体都会去源代码中找CSS,这次实在没能找到百度了下发现了这个插件,实在是太棒啦!!!很轻松就能知道好看的字体是什么字体了!!!使用的方法是左键单击插件图标,一开始可能会出现点击后是右键单击的展开菜单,关闭Chrome重启就好了
  • (2020-01-22) Amaan Rizwan: You have to refresh the page before trying it out. How to use it? 1. Click on the WhatFont icon 2. Exit WhatFont button appears on top right of the tab(for me) 3. Hover around to see the font of the text.

  • (2020-01-12) Michael TH: Its pretty good. Developer: You should create an icon that is for dark mode/dark themes too. The icon is black and it should be able to be seen in both light themes/mode and dark themes/mode.

  • (2019-11-15, v:2.1.0) Yash Tamrakar: How to use this?
    Not able to figure out how to use this tool.
  • (2019-09-24, v:2.1.0) Frank Dana: "Exit" button is hidden behind menu, when open
    Because the "Exit WhatFont" button appears in the upper right corner of the page when the extension is activated, if the extension has been moved to the Chrome menu (instead of the toolbar) then the button will be invisible because it's completely covered by the menu. This makes it very difficult to determine whether the extension is activated or not — you have to open the menu, click the icon, click outside the menu to close it, and then look for the "Exit WhatFont" button. Perhaps the button could appear in the lower right (or even lower left) corner, instead of the upper right?

  • (2019-04-17, v:2.1.0) Gen Li: Tooltip position
