For years, Google has offered a cache of excellent fonts for use on websites, apps like Docs and for your desktop tools. Now, the site has been completely overhauled with a beautiful interface that makes it easy to find the right typeface for your next design project.

Google Fonts now has a brand new layout that displays font previews in a dynamic grid that resizes as you adjust your preferences. You can check out every style for each font, change the preview text and compare options side by side. A handy sidebar lets you filter the library of more than 800 fonts by category, language and parameters like thickness, slant and width.
