Google launches font-search

Google's R&D team have been hard at work creating this new feature, the font-search. When you type in a search-term that also happens to be the name of a font, you'll find that the page text changes to display in said font. Try it with Helvetica. CEO and cofounder Larry Page explains: "We call it Font explorer, with digital design being part of everyones lives today, Google should be there to help, just as Google does with your documents, your book searches and your every day social life". What about licensing? Not to worry, Larry Page says; "We had confidential negotiations with Veer that were very extensive. We now have font licensing rights to the entire back catalogue of every type that exists."

April Fools. :)
