Extensis Releases Top 10 Web Fonts Used in 2013 from WebINK

Extensis recently revealed the list of top 10 web fonts used in 2013. According to data collected from the professional web font service WebINK, designers and developers used Myriad Pro most often for their projects, a position it also held in 2012.

New to this year’s list of top 10 used fonts are Fakt Pro and Museo Sans. These both continue the typography trend toward modern san serifs. Fakt Pro by Thomas Thiemich is a fresh “Helvetica alternative,” as are several others already on the list such as Theinhardt and Aktiv Grotesk. Museo Sans is a geometric sans serif by Jos Buivenga, that has a warm and somewhat retro feel, not unlike its Top-10 stablemate Proxima Nova.

Here is the full list:

Every second on the Internet…

Every minute on the web

I came across this web page that shows what happens on the Internet every second, and though it was extremely cool. I don’t know where they get their data from, but it’s fun to see how quickly various sites grow.

As you can see in the screenshot above, the time it took me to scroll down to the Twitter section and take the screenshot, over 157,000 Tweets were registered on Twitter.
