    How to find out a font on a webpage

    I really like the fonts that are used on this webpage. I have looked through the css and but I am unable to work out which font that they use.

    Is there a firefox add on or a way to easy see what font is used on a webpage???Or an easy way to work out what font they are using???

    So what you see is most likely Trebuchet.

    Web Developer Toolbar → Information → Display Element Information
    (or Ctrl+Shift+F -- but of course you need it installed first)

    And then it's just in the line that says Font family:

    Gotta love the 'toolbar

    It's a pity that there isn't a method that can tell what the font is, when it's embeded in an image... or is there?

    Now that would be useful!
