    Fonts. How many do you have? Which ones do you use the most? Which are your favourites?

    I currently have 430 fonts installed,
    I use Amaranth, Ayita, Yanone Kaffeesatz, Arial and Tahoma.
    My favourite is Yanone Kaffeesatz.

    Are they only the defaults or have you got any installed?

    I'm a big fan of Helvetica, I think it's simple but effective.

    I have 238 fonts currently. I only use about 15 of them though. Most of them came from the computer and are very messy. I prefer the cleaner, simpler ones.

    I really like that font, but everywhere I look, it says you have to pay for it. Did you pay for it, or is it a different version of it?

    I got hundreds... I didn't even use most of them...
    So far, I regularly use only 10%-20% of those fonts primarily on graphic works...

    It's been a while since I downloaded a new font.

    I never really go to other sites besides DaFont since they already got a large database of free fonts that could match any graphics that you will make.

    I have nearly a thousand fonts on my computer because I use different fonts for different graphics that I make.

    My favorite fonts are Calibri, Arial, Segoe, Helvetica, Sans-serif. These seem to have consistent spacing/sizes that are easy on the eyes. Of course I have hundreds to chose from through my adobe photoshop installed font package, but still the ones stated are my favorites.

    You can change the letter spacing and sizing in Photoshop and with CSS. Simple fonts though, web safe too. Good choices.
