The WhatFont tool is a great way to identify what web fonts are being used right on a page. When the bookmarklet is active, just click on any text to discover its full font stack!

Go to chengyinliu.com/whatfont.html to install the bookmarklet (Firefox 3.6+, Chrome 9+, Safari 4+, Internet Explorer 9) or get the extension for Chrome.
