Best Google Web Fonts for Website Designers

Web designers have more options for fonts and typography than ever. A few years ago, fonts were severely limited. With the birth of web typography, namely Google web fonts, web designers have scores of new text to use in web design projects.

Google has over 600 free web fonts available for use anytime. These can be used in headings, paragraphs, navigation, and anywhere else on web pages. A word of caution though – don’t use too many on your pages. The result not only causes a dramatic reduction in load time, but will also leave pages looking very chaotic.

Selecting the right ones from this collection may be just a tad overwhelming. So, to make it easier for you, we have collected 10 of the best, and most popular fonts for the web, and listed them here for your convenience.

Please let us know your opinion on these, and tell us your favorite Google web font, even if it isn’t included in this list.
