As people who love technology, one aspect that we are very particular about is fonts. As a die hard Mac user, I am totally sold on Helvetica. However, not necessary that everyone likes Sans Serif font faces and you may have a choice of your own. So wouldn’t it be cool if you could browse your favorite sites or check out your own website in a font different to the existing one.
What is TypeWonder?
TypeWonder is a website, that lets you checkout any site in the font of your choice. You can pick any of Arvo, Droid Sans, PT Serif and several others.
Not just check out how the site would look in a different font of your choice, but the site also gives you code that you can add to your website to implement the code and get the same font throughout.
You can also pick the font style, such as Italic or Bold form of the font when you are selecting the code for the website. This is really useful as you may want a particular section to be in bold or in italics.
What is More to it?
Not just as a website, but TypeWonder is available as an extension for Google Chrome. You will find the Download link of the same below. Once you have installed the extension for free, it will live on the menu bar of Chrome. All you need to do is click on the button and you will be redirected to the TypeWonder website where you can again pick the font of your choice for the site of your choice.
The application uses Google’s Web fonts API so you have choices galore and we found the tool to be really useful. Also, since it is very much in beta, we do expect few more improvements and add ons to it in future.
As a free tool, TypeWonder is a very useful tool with a neat and simple UI and UX respectively. The font choice is also really vast so we did not miss a thing. We do recommend it to our readers and if for no technical use, this may be a good fun thing to try out.
