Fonts for Programmers

By reia

Or as some would say, “Good-bye Courier New.”

This conversation in Typographica suggests different types of typefaces to use instead of the default Courier font while you code for easier reading, use, and dammit, it’s just prettier. It started in November of 2003, but the suggestions still continue!

From the thread, I found the wonderful Anonymous font from Mark Simonson studio. I now use it in HomeSite, and how sweet it is.

Hat tip: kottke.

edit: Five minutes after I posted this, I found a sizeable resevoir of Programmer’s Fonts. Enjoy!
