I've been using this for about a year. It hasn't left my Chrome since. Super handy.
Yeah, but WhatFont lets you see if it's from GWF or Typekit & clicks through to the font's page on either service.
+1 on that. I rather use the fewest extensions I can.
Damn, this is going to save me a lot of time. I usually use the inspector which is less than ideal. Thanks for sharing
Great tool but, The heading font of this page is 32px and the Extension shows 32.22222137451172px ?
Must be.. mine shows 32px.
Did you zoom the page out ?
It always shows font size/line height in pixels; it’d be great if a future version of WhatFont could show em/rem units too!
Been using it forever. Definitely my most used Chrome plugin, it's just so nice to have.
Use this everyday. Love it.
I've been using their browser bookmarklet for a long time now. Great tool
I use this all the time and yeah have had it as a staple in Chrome for about a year as well.
AWESOME. Had no idea this was out there. Thanks.
Firebug works fine for me. Invent a tool that can tell you what font is used in a jpg or png, and I will be amazed.

It's sad that WhatTheFont doesn't really work that well, a lot of the times when I try to use it, it failed to identify the font.
A lot of times it really depends on the quality of the image you put into it. If you're trying to identify a sans serif, you have to make sure it's a pretty high quality image. It also doesn't do a great job with connected scripts, unfortunately.
If all else fails, there's always the WhatTheFont forums. The people who hang out there are amazingly good at identifying fonts. They're fast too.
yeah, the forum's the better way to go in my opinion.
