Increasing the diversity of fonts on the web using the Google Font API, the Google Font Directory and the Webfont Loader. The selection of fonts used on the Web is very small. This has changed with the new in CSS3 defined @font-face. This allows fonts to be loaded from the web, which works in all modern browsers. This mechanism requires appropriate fonts and the right to make them available on the web or to download from other sources. For this Google has created his Google Font Directory and the Google Font API.

Embedding the font into your page is very easy. Embed the right stylesheet of the font in your page:

Simply use the font in your CSS font stack like any other font, for example:

h1 { font-family: 'Lobster', arial, serif; }
