Tim Brown released the Web Font Specimen in conjunction with his article Real Web Type in Real Web Context on A List Apart back in November. He updated it last week to v2 which is laser-focused on seeing what your type looks like in your browser.
One very cool component of this release is that Typekit—who Tim now works for—has integrated the Web Font Specimen into their service. See, for example, FF Meta Serif Web Pro Book.
But the part that makes me blush is that Tim decided to include FontFriend on the new Web Font Specimen homepage as an ideal companion to the specimen. In order to feel like I deserved a spot on there, I’ve added a special feature to FontFriend: it now detects if you’re on the Web Font Specimen demo and automatically updates the font name when you select a font family.
