What happens when you come across a font online you’d like to use within your website? Look in the source code? That’s so… archaic. Don't worry, there’s a better way!

Web designers (perhaps even those that are involved with a new site or redesign) should check out Fount, a very handy bookmarklet that provides the ability to identify any Web font in a font stack (e.g. Google Web Fonts or Typekit) that is used on a web page.
