Yesterday google announced a library of fonts that use the CSS3 @font-face properties to be embedded into webpages. You can go and get some free fonts for your website from here.

So why is google releasing a library of web fonts, well it’s quite simple actually. Google promotes the newest web technologies because they are a web company. I am assuming not too far from now they will have a wide selection of fonts to use in Google Docs (the Microsoft Word web alternative). Google is a web company and they strive on progressing the web. Our sources in the Google IO conference this year told us that google is working on a Flash alternative that will build HTML5 animations. Very excited to see how that turns out.

As I wrote in my Web Fonts 2.0 article there are some light down sides to using @font-face. But with googles delivery speed it’s a good bet you won’t find yourself in too much hassle.
