A serif is a small horizontal line or a squiggling at the ends of a letter. The serifs or end strokes are used in various forms, for example in curved form or as fine hair lines.

The Times New Roman font is certainly one of the best-known serif fonts. In the printed median, serif fonts improve readability, whereas sans serif fonts are mostly used on the web.
