Google Fonts – This sh*t – I mean, Web Fonts, just got real

Posted on by Chip Cullen

Do yourself a favor, and check this out.

Now that a real company is standing behind web fonts, I think web typography is going to explode.

The server response is unreal – I’ve not been seeing any flashes of un-styled content in any of my own test uses of it. Like in my headlines or current site title.

I also encourage others to start using these fonts that Google is hosting. The more they’re used across the web, the more users will have cached versions of them – which means faster response for everyone.

I do have one question: how does one contribute to this apparently open-source effort? That is, can one contribute fonts to this directory? I’m sure the folks at The League of Movable Type would love to have some of their work represented.
