  1. This is awesome it changes straight away without reloading.Great tool.

  2. I'm assuming that you're assuming my blog is on Blogger, right? If that were true, I guess I would know where to click 'Layout > Add a Gadget' etc., in step 1 of your instructions.

  3. Awesome Love It !

  4. Great.
    I have two bloggers.
    One is successfully using this guide.
    But the other one, no. It can only change the text size, not the font type.
    Any solutions please?

    Thank You in advance :)

  5. thank you for sharing such nice infoto us. i like it its very informative one keep sharing this type of information to keep in touch with the people.

  6. This is a great idea, but still not widely implemented. The fonts and style of a blog actually influence me a great deal when choosing to read blogs. It would be really awesome if there was a site that you could log into that would match your preferences to all the blogs you read.
