Google Web Fonts is Growing Up

Posted by Rainey

When I first posted about Google Web Fonts, Google only had about 12 fonts to choose from. With 240+ fonts to choose from, Google Web Fonts is beginning to feel more like a real tool, rather than a toy.

Besides the addition of new fonts, Google Web Fonts also pleasantly updated their user interface, making much easier to find and change your fonts.  Another really nice feature is the ability to add fonts to your collection. From here, you can review the font and grab the needed code to use it on your website.  Google also gives you an idea of how each font will affect your page load time with a handy little load impact meter.

I am excited about the future of web design with HTML5, CSS3 and wonderful font options on the horizon.

Try Google Web Fonts out for yourself.
