Flexible Font Sizes with FitText

Imagine, how your design layout would appear to users on a nifty handheld device and to the person viewing it on a hi-res wide screen. With so many browsing options (iPad, Tablets, Mobile Phones, Wide Screen Monitors etc.), you can limit your design to pre-defined scales. It has to be fluid and scalable – not just the layout but the entire text in your website/web application so users can read contents easily. Challenging? Not actually, at least not with FitText.

FitText is a jQuery plugin to make font-sizes flexible. Use this plugin on your fluid or responsive layout to achieve scalable headlines that fill the width of a parent element. FitText is a perfect choice while developing cross-platform websites (scalable for all those nifty devices and displays).
