Web is a big domain. There are so many things to explore, to recognise and to admire here. The vast world of Internet has been crafted intelligently and beautifully with HTML, the popular abbreviation of hyper text mark up language. Without HTML, the web world would not have been the one we see today. It marks up text and presents content appropriately. The powerful presentation of content very much depends on the use of the right font or typeface. While browsing the web, we come across many striking websites with content written in an eye-catching font style. Such font styles are not to be found in Microsoft Word. So how do you know about them? You need not worry as there is FontFace Ninja, a great web text identifying browser plugin. This has turned out to be a requisite for custom web application development. Dig into web’s text with FontFace Ninja : Before the emergence of FontFace Ninja, finding out a web font style was something very much irksome. You had to select a text, right click on it, browse the several lines of the HTML to know the font style and then, sort through the styles to hit upon the ‘font face’ declaration. This was indeed, a long process. But, now, you can say this tedious method goodbye forever and say hi to a new and much faster technique i.e. Fontface Ninja. Who Pulled It Off and What It Does: Developed by Creaktif, a famous French creative studio, FontFace Ninja comes as a free plugin for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari.

If you want to focus on the typeface on a blank background, you can easily do so with this fabulous browser plugin. It lets you put the background images, animations and adverts out of sight so that the font only takes the spotlight. Once you install FontFace browser plugin to aid in your custom web application development project, you can start using it by clicking on a small ninja button which features at the top right corner of your browser and then, rolling the mouse on the font you wish to find out more.
