COOL TOOLS

Font self-help
Designing a web page? You’ll want to make sure your text is readable. These 47 Typography Tools for Web Design can help you edit, preview, and compare fonts.

Typeface selection and pairing—online
As more and more fonts become available for use in web design, designers will need more help choosing readable typefaces that convey a message. But remember this: “Just because you can use the font that looks like it’s wearing bellbottoms, doesn’t mean you should.“

Google to the fourth power
If you’ve ever wanted to compare four websites in the same window, now you can. Go to googlegooglegooglegoogle.com, and you get four independent Google windows that can all be used separately. If you type that same URL into one of those boxes, you get four more. You can see at a glance how your homepage compares to others!
