LearnShowcase of the Best Google Fonts

writes on February 1, 2012

It’s no secret that I am in love with Google Fonts. In fact, I use Google Fonts frequently in Treehouse videos. 🙂

The ongoing drawback to Google Fonts has been the smaller selection compared to other font services, but that’s rapidly changing. Even better, an editorialized web page called “Beautiful Web Type” has popped up that showcases the best fonts that Google has to offer. Loving this!

  1. I love roboto condensed, poiret one Google web fonts theiy are awesome fonts and simple.

  2. I too use it. With it actually appearance becomes not such boring.

  3. In my opinion, “lato” is the most fashionable one. It’s thin, sans-serif, tall stems are really astonishing.

  4. Why doesn’t the site work in IE7? (Why am I looking at it in IE7? Because most of us still have to support it.) ((I believe the answer to my own question is because the coder has improperly placed their HTML5shiv script.)) My biggest beef with Google Web Fonts is that they still don’t look very good on Windows, at least using their recommended javascript embed method. The @font-face embed method seems better if you care about cross-platform aesthetics.
