Links Pile Up: 40+ Websites To Get Or Download Fonts

Whether you are a professional graphic designer or an amateur web publisher, fonts are an essential part of your work to create better looking products, and it is an essential part of every one that uses computers and Internet because we see it every day in websites, applications, designs, office programs and emails. So what is a font anyway?

A font (also fount) is traditionally defined as a complete character set of a single size and style of a particular typeface. For example, the set of all characters for 9-point Bulmer italic is a font, and the 10-point size would be a separate font, as would the 9 point upright. After the introduction of computer fonts based on fully scalable outlines, a broader definition evolved. Font is no longer size-specific, but still refers to a single style. Bulmer regular, Bulmer italic, Bulmer bold and Bulmer bold italic are four fonts, but one typeface.

In this article I compiled a list of websites to search, browse and download fonts or to buy commercial fonts.

Links Pile Up: 20+ Ways to Easily Short URL

Every one who has a twitter account must have seen short link or short url that twitter use when you post a new update with a long url. URL shortening is a technique on the World Wide Web where a provider makes a web page available under a very short URL in addition to the original address. There are several reasons to use URL shortening:

  • Avoid URL garbling: Currently, web developers tend to pass descriptive attributes in the URL to represent data hierarchies, command structures, transaction paths and session information. This may result in a URL that is aesthetically unpleasant and difficult to remember. Copying a URL that is hundreds of characters long can make the URL garbled. Then a short URL is useful to copy on an e-mail message or a forum post.
  • Use the smallest space possible
  • Reading aloud: To accomplish this objective any URL shortening service can be useful. However those which let the user choose the URL are more suited for this task.
  • Manipulating visitors: URL shortening is a special kind of URL redirection, which is sometimes used in pranks, phishing, or affiliate hiding. More recently, some of these services have started filtering all shortened links through services like Google Safe Browsing.
