What is a serif font and a sans-serif font?

Ever here someone talking about typography to you and you have no clue what they are talking about? The photo below best describes the difference between a serif and a sans-serif font. Sans-serif is used mostly for web, or certain print designs because it is easier to read on a computer screen. Serif is used for print and newspaper design since it is easier on the eyes to read in print.

Hope this helps anyone aspiring to understand the world of typography.
