I'm working on an update to my 2009 article, Top 10 Programming Fonts
). I have a pretty good list of fonts going already, but it seems that I always miss a few.
So this time around I wanted to open the floodgates a bit and invite you to share your favorite programming font with me for scrutiny before I start writing the article.
My requirements for consideration are two:
1. It must be a monospace font.
I get that there's a special breed of developer who enjoys coding in Zapfino, but for the purposes of this article, I'm sticking to monospace.
2. It must be free to download and use as a programming font.
Last time I included Consolas as an exception because it's included for free with many applications, but generally I'm looking for free fonts.
Please include a link so we can try out your suggestion.
