Google Analytics, the most popular and free analytics tool around, has already an API to pull data from.
OOcharts, a free service, adds a layer between you and the GA API to simplify and improve the requests you make.
First of all, a JS library allows you to get any data with a visualization using the Google Charts.
OOcharts also helps you stay within the limits of Google Analytics API by queuing and the requests.
And, a caching feature makes sure you get the results of similar requests much faster.
An update in typography of design projects can quickly change the look & feel of it and there can always be better looking fonts.
TypeWonder is a free-to-use web application for testing a website with different fonts in real-time.
We simply enter the URL of the website, select the font from a list of free fonts (currently, only Google Fonts) and the site is presented with the new font.
It is also possible to browse the site afterwards with the new font and the sub-pages will use this font too.
For the future, what would be great is to define different fonts for different elements, classes and IDs.

font-family in your CSS rules.
