Apercu (colophon foundry) through fontdeck.com behaves quite well!
Helvetica/arial for me are the best
Or use some google fonts
Depends on the website : googlefonts for small budgets, its quite easy to find relatively similar typefaces to the ones clients may already have; bigger budgets allow for buying webfonts, so the choice is almost unlimited. Nowadays, when doing corporate image work, I always choose typefaces having a webfont version, even though you can cufon them if none has already been made.
It really depends on your style. If you are going for chic / casual feminine:
Something like cursive, script or handwriting really does the job.
If you are going to more professional, minimal and clean:
more elegant, simple, san-serif are very appealing on themes like business or portfolio.
Different fonts may affect the themes, so you really have to think carefully.
Hope this helps
I think Garamond and Sabon both work very nice.
use the content to find a suitable typeface. anything legible is great, look out for the L and the I too.
Probably anything from:
Google Webfonts for smaller budgets - like Roboto, Source Sans Pro, Open Sans, Lato, Oswald
Typekit - Bebas Neue, Acta Display, Fira Sans, Nimbus Sans
Apercu is everywhere so I try to stay away from it. Excited that Klim Foundry has begun to make a lot of their typefaces available as webfonts. Big fan of Calibre.
I do like Proxima Nova a lot!
I think the question "favorite font for websites" is not a good question.
We make websites in many domains and use fonts accordingly with the domain:
- something with serifes for a armurery website
- something very clean like ubuntu for a technology company
- a big and easy to read font for children storyes website
So... i think i like all the fonts viewed from the usability perspective.
And from loading and seo perspective - google fonts
For my is Helvetic
Montserrat from Google Font ! Really nice one
Montserrat and Proxima Nova
