Improve your website’s design with the help of this useful Chrome extension that allows you to identify fonts, bookmark, and try, and even buy them
Some nice colors and a good font can go a long way when it comes to designing a successful online product, whether most of it realize it straight off the bat or not.
Thankfully, there are a lot of good apps, and online services ready to help you out when it comes to choosing the best possible font for your product. Or, you could opt for something a bit more streamlined and get your inspiration from other successful websites with the help of a Chrome extension called Font Ninja.
Font Ninja for Chrome is a well-designed extension that allows you to identify fonts from pretty much any website on the Internet. Not only that, but it also allows you to bookmark them, try them out for a limited period (premium feature), and eventually buy them if they perfectly fit your taste and needs.
How it works
Font Ninja for Chrome uses a unique algorithm that analyses font files and provides you with accurate results. There’s also an option that provides you with extra information regarding the discovered fonts such as its name, and other CSS-related properties.
Additionally, you can also check out more styles related to the fonts, their foundry, price, and even how popular they are on the Internet (how many websites are actually using them).
GUI and some extra features
The extension’s GUI is pretty much on par with those of other modern Chrome extensions. There are two main sections: one that provides you with various details regarding the fonts (everything from their name, price, and CSS-related info), and a second one that allows you to bookmark fonts and organize them using boards.
If you opt for the premium feature called Trial Fonts, you can install the fonts discovered on websites and use them in any of your projects (websites, apps, etc.).
If you’re into web design and you feel that you’re not efficient enough when it comes to discovering, and trying out fonts, then there’s a good chance Font Ninja for Chrome will appeal to you. It allows you to access over 3000 popular fonts directly in Chrome and even try them out in your design software with basically no effort.
