Google releases a font directory

Added on: Thursday 20th May 2010

Google has just released their font API which allows anyone to embed a variety of fonts into a webpage without any licensing issues.

Currently the directory offers 19 different fonts. An example of one of them is shown below.

This is the Tangerine font

All you need to do is link to the library via a simple stylesheet statement.

Then you just use the font within your element styles.

The other advantage of this method is that the fonts are hosted by Google so you don't need to worry about your bandwidth.


<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine">
