The Best of Lorem Ipsum Generators

Cate Miller
Sales & Operations Manager

Developers, designers, and testers often need to add placeholder text to pages to show how content will be displayed on a website. Classic Lorem Ipsum text contains Latin words derived from the works of Cicero. According to lipsum.com, this has been the standard “since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.”

Boring.

I highly suggest that you bookmark these alternatives for all of your future projects.
