Screen friendly fonts for online browsing

In my previous article I discussed about 'printer friendly' fonts which can save your money for printing jobs. Today we are learning about 'screen friendly fonts' which are comfortable to read. Certain fonts can be clearly readable and comfortable for eyes. While online browsing, screen-friendly fonts helps protect your eyes and reduce stress.
Let's learn about screen friendly fonts:

Screen-friendly fonts:
The best choices are Verdana, Trebuchet MS and the serif font Georgia. These fonts are>;also highly readable on paper. These three fonts are modern, friendly and professional, and exceptionally easy to read on-screen. All these fonts are great to look at on screen and on paper.

You write most documents on a computer, looking at a screen you read and write all your e-mail on a screen you read intranet and web pages on a screen.
On a low-resolution PC screen, older fonts like Times, Arial, Helvetica and Courier look like cross-stitch in cat fur.
In the meantime, at least set your web browser and email to display in one of the screen-friendly fonts: you will immediately notice the difference.
Verdana is like a pretty nurse who makes you feel better but will tolerate no nonsense.
Trebuchet is thinner, more like an elegant, marathon-running professor. Georgia has little serif hats and shoes, and is round and cuddly.
Choosing serif or sans-serif: The serif or sans-serif dilemma is trivial compared with the urgent need to choose a screen-friendly font for business documents.

Sans-serif fonts have a clean, modern look. Serif fonts lead the eye forwards and provide extra clues for the reader. In the past, sans-serif fonts were mainly used for headlines, margin notes, tables, footnotes: any place where very large or small text was needed. But today, sans-serif fonts are often used in body text or for entire business documents.
Older sans-serif fonts include Arial, Geneva and Helvetica.
Georgia is a screen-friendly serif font. (Older serif fonts, include Times, Times New Roman, New York and Palatino.)
