Use Google Chrome to determine fonts on a website

Well, this is pretty confusing mainly because the Chrome developer tools keep changing, but for November 2019, here is how to do it:

  1. Download Chrome
  2. Enable Developer tools
  3. Start them with View/Developer/Developer Tools
  4. Now a window opens on the left, you want to click on the upper left icon there called Select Item to Inspect It which is also Command-Shift-C on a Mac, then the right screen should change
  5. Highlight any element and in a popup box, you will see the Font type. For instance, the default in WordPress right now is Noto Sans.
