In February 2011, Google made a different approach to make the web a more beautiful place by launching what used to be called Google Web Fonts — a collection of free fonts to choose from — that allowed web developers and publishers to use various font faces on their web. Today, Google has rebranded the service from Google Web Fonts to Google Fonts.
It’s not just the name of the service that was simplified. Google Fonts, now featuring over 600 open source fonts, now has a simpler and easier-to-navigate interface that allows you to find out just the perfect font face that you are looking for. If you own a piece of land on the web and you want to make your website’s typography better, you really should check out Google Fonts now.
