Which font looks better in website - Arial or Times New Roman?
Which font looks better in website - Arial or Times New Roman? You may state your own preference other than the above-mentioned.
I personally prefer a sans serif font such as Arial to a font with serifs, such as Times.
I feel that in many respects, this is easier to read, but certain characters are similar to one another, like 'l' (lower case 'L') and 'I' (Upper case 'I'), which can be slightly confusing.
In Times, these characters are all noticeably different, but overall, the font does not look as good.
That's just an opinion though.
Other fonts can be more difficult to read in anything other than headings where they are larger than the normal text, which can be off-putting,
Much can also depend upon which colours are used as some can either make smaller ornate fonts difficult to read or enhance them depending upon the combinations used.
Arial looks fine, whereas Times New Roman may not be good to read in some cases especially when you use smaller font sizes.
Whilst Times New Roman can be fine in websites going for a more ornate theme, Arial is easier to read 99% of the time. It also reacts better to different colours and sizes, and, on the whole, looks a lot better. That's just my opinion though. Normally I would use a font such as Verdana or Tahoma, but it all depends on the theme of the website.
Best thing is to try both and see which looks best. Good Luck .
A good friend of mine, who is one of the best graphic/web designers I know, will have his tombstone engraved in arial but I disagree. Verdana all the way baby.
I pick Calibri anytime (if I can); it is rounded, gentle, welcoming... and a pleasure to read. Headings don't shout at you but draw you in.... one of the best features of Word 2007 as far as I am concerned
As a web developer I would always present my clients with Arial, Verdana and Times.... Verdana usually won out.
One websites I always go with either Arial or Verdana, but in print Times is a lot better.
Between Arial and Times New Roman, Arial should be used. If given a thrird choice, one should go with Verdana.
I always use A serif font like Times New Roman in all of my headlines.
For body (and all other) copy I select a sans-serif font like Arial or Verndana.
both of them is good but i prefer verdana, nice style on web i guess
i def feel that arial is the better choice..more modern looking
Times New Roman gives a more professional feeling to the site, while Arial gives a modern welcoming feeling.
I'm currently a web designer from Chennai, India. I use verdana for small texts. It is very legible even when used in smaller sizes like 11 px.
I use arial when I go with normal texts like 14 or 15 px. But I've a love for Georgia.
