Have you ever asked yourself what fonts are using the best 20 websites in the world? I asked myself this question in the shower and immediately decide to write an article on this topic. It is mega interesting and I hope that you are eager to find out.

The top 20 websites in the world is made by SimilarWeb, a platform that I personally use very often, maybe daily, to find out how blogs are doing in terms of traffic and other metrics.

The top websites rank by SimilarWeb is based on the most visited websites in the world, and their engagement metrics. The rank date is 1st April 2020 and it is not a joke. 
