    Creator here - I wanted to explain a bit more about FontReach. FR crawls the top million websites, and surfaces data about font usage across the web. It allows us to answer questions like, 'How many sites use Proxima Nova?' or 'What are the most used fonts on the internet?". We now have data around the fairly uncharted world of web fonts.

    Nicely done. The UI for this is very slick.

    I should give this Arial a try for a next project.

    I’m very impressive Noto Sans Japanese used by 111 sites.

    Crazy to see Font-Awesome break the top 10. Unbelievable how widely used that is.

        Sorry, my comment wasn't very clear. I meant it would be nice if there was an external link to the website once I land on it's page. For example, I search "Brandon Grotesque", then click on "People.com". From here, I think it would be nice to have a link to People.com open in a new tab.

          Yeah, I agree. Because it's not optimized for domain browsing (rather font browsing), I did not add URL support. Perhaps in a later iteration :)

    The letter spacing hover effect is pretty cool, haven't seen that one used before.

    Hilariously useful, well designed, and well executed. We cycle through lots of fonts for our projects at baylaunch.com

    Amazing. This is oddly fun.

    Interestingly the resource counts incorrectly specified fallbacks:

    These are more popular than wonderful typefaces like National, Neutral, Ratio or Seravek which don’t place well (or at all). This seems like a great resource for checking whether a typeface you’re considering is a rarer or atypical choice.

    Very amazing website, but I really wished that it gives a review of the font to see how it does look like when I use it.
