New free fonts from Google

Google is going through a design metamorphosis and launching a lot of new products and features. Designers should take note of a new series of 180 free fonts. Many of the free fonts available are the kind you would use to spice the invitation for your children's birthday party, and they usually are not presented on a web site that allows you to search and compare them.

Not so with Google. Most of the fonts are for serious use and are viable replacements for Arial, Calibri and Times New Roman. Also, there are some good extra black ones for headlines and titles. The search interface is great, enabling you to select styles and test out words, sentences, and paragraphs.
