Ripping woff fonts from a web page

Quoting Ori Ben-Dor, in a discussion regarding the possibility to obtain any web font: Whenever you go to a website, the server sends the webfonts to your browser, so the browser already has access to the files, and while you, the user, can't access them directly in the default mode, virtually all browsers have a developer mode that provides the user with access to everything the browser has access to, including webfonts. For instance, in Chrome all you need to do is right-click anywhere on the page, choose Inspect, then go to the Network tab, and filter for Font (then you need to refresh the page, since only resources loaded after developer mode has been opened are listed).

Stackoverflow gives essentially the same recipe: To get .woff fonts first open the chrome dev tools panel (Ctrl+Shift+i) go to Network and reload the page. There you will see everything the page downloads. Find the .woff file, right click and select Copy response. The response will be a url so paste it in the navigation bar. A file will be downloaded, just add the .woff extension to it and voila.
