Designers and lovers of typography will want to check out Google Fonts, a service that aims to improve the visual richness and aesthetic appeal of web design through font. First launched in 2010, Google Fonts is essentially a library of free fonts that have been optimized for web use. The site opens to the Directory, where users may browse the collection of over 800 font families. Fonts of interest may then be previewed and customized. For instance, users can change the background color of the site to explore how fonts will look with different color pairings. Once a font is selected, users may copy and paste the generated code into their webpage. Users less familiar with adding fonts to webpages may find the Getting Started Guide helpful.
