Turn on VirusBarrier's Anti-Spyware feature, and it will alert you to applications that attempt to connect to remote servers.

MyFonts.com Adds Fresh Faces

Send Article to a Friend

MyFonts.com Adds Fresh Faces -- During this time of dot-com implosions, it's nice to see a good idea doing well. Online font vendor MyFonts.com announced that it has added 11 new font foundries to its lineup, increasing the size of its catalog to more than 13,000 typefaces. The new additions include faces from Bergsland, BlueVinyl Fonts, Burghal Design, Storm Type Foundry, and others. Part of the MyFonts appeal, aside from the depth of offerings, is its online technologies: WhatTheFont can examine an uploaded scanned image and identify the typeface used, while TypeXplorer provides font suggestions based on boldness, width, contrast, or x-height.
