Google Font API

Google is taking on projects like sIFR and Cufón with their new Google Font API. A simple line of JavaScript lets you load a font family from their directory of open source fonts, allowing you to safely reference it within your CSS.

Here is an example:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="">
<style type="text/css">
body {
font-family: 'Cardo', serif;
font-size: 24px;

It’s simple, and it looks like it works cross-browser pretty much. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more supported fonts in the future. And please, don’t abuse Lobster until it becomes the next Comic Sans.
