MyFonts is your one stop shop for all things fonts. They are not only offering a huge collection of desktop fonts but also licenses for apps, ebooks, servers and webfonts. For the latter they have just introduced the brand-new category Top Webfonts. With thousands of webfonts available it is pretty easy to lose track. This category, however, helps you to find the perfect font for your web project by listing the 50 most popular @font-face webfonts including Proxima Nova, Pluto™ and Helvetica® Neue.
MyFonts now offers Webfont Previews and Trials, two new features to help you try and choose the right webfonts for your projects.
MyFonts’ free Webfont Previews and Trials are really nice features to help you with your purchase decision. You can test any webfont at no cost for 30 days. Simply choose your favourite and embed the code displayed into your website. In a fraction of a second you will thus see whether the font blends in nicely or not. Right after your purchase you will be able to set up your fonts via the flexible kit builder and download a webfont kit which will then be hosted on your own server.
The webfonts offered at MyFonts generally come with a Pay-Once and use forever model with no monthly fees. Only if you exceed the monthly number of pageviews, you are required to upgrade your license. As usual there are some exceptions. Foundries like Monotype, Linotype, and Ascender have opted for a so-called Pay-As-You-Go model, where you are purchasing a certain amount of pageviews. Once used up, you would have to buy more pageviews.
