Why Is Lorem Ipsum So Widely Used? 

You might be wondering why so many developers and designers choose lorem ipsum when they could just copy a page from a public domain book or similar. The main reason is that it lets the user or viewer get a sense of the visual form of a document or prototype, without driving too much focus to the placeholder text itself.

Imagine you’re designing a newspaper. Instead of going through the trouble of copying text from different sources to make the design as realistic as possible, you could just copy the standard lorem ipsum placeholder text and use that instead.

Lorem ipsum is so widely recognized that you do not even need to specify that it is a placeholder text—virtually everyone who comes across it, will immediately recognize that the text is filler.
