I’ve prepared a list of stellar Google Web Fonts to Download, and there’s hundreds of free, open source fonts to choose from that have all been optimized for the web. The way Google Web Fonts works is, you browse, or search a font (like the ones I’ve listed here) then add what you like to your collection for download.

The great thing about Google Web Fonts is we’re no longer restricted to the ‘web safe’ fonts of: Arial, MS Trebuchet, Georgia, Times New Roman, and Verdana. All you need to do is grab the the code Google generates and you can add the collections (or font face) to your website.

Amatic SC

Oswald is great web typeface to use when a condensed font is needed. It’s a boxy sans serif font with simple straight line descenders. Another font designed by Vernon Adams.

Droid was the inspiration behind Actually’s branding typeface. I’ve got a thing for serif fonts that are slightly angled or are italicized and love the opportunity to use Droid! Designed by Steve Matteson.

Ubuntu

A great choice for bold sans-serif design usages. It’s like helvetica – you can’t go wrong.  Designed by Dalton Maag.

Allerta

This Google web font has formidable characters. I mean seriously, check out that ampersand and stare at right corners of the letter descenders on the l, u and r and tell me you aren’t in awe, feeling the grandeur and strength in each. Allerta is not like the others and was designed by Matt McInerney.
