Google Fonts

Google Fonts is a free service offered by Google that allows web developers to easily use a wide variety of fonts on their websites. Google Fonts hosts a large library of open-source fonts that can be easily added to a website with just a few lines of code.

Here's an example of how to use Google Fonts in CSS:

1. Choose a font from the Google Fonts library. Let's say we want to use the font "Open Sans".

2. Add a link to the font in the HTML head section:

<head>
  <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans" rel="stylesheet">
</head>

This link loads the "Open Sans" font from the Google Fonts library.

3. Specify the font in the CSS:

body {
  font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif;
}

In this example, the font family for the body text is set to "Open Sans", which is a font from the Google Fonts library. If the user's device does not have the "Open Sans" font installed, it will be downloaded from the Google Fonts server and used on the website.

Google Fonts offers a wide variety of fonts, including serif, sans-serif, display, handwriting, and monospace fonts. Developers can use Google Fonts to add more creative and unique typography to their websites, which can help make their website stand out and enhance the overall design. By using Google Fonts, developers can easily access a wide variety of high-quality fonts without having to host the font files themselves.
