The best web and mobile fonts of 2012 are … | VentureBeat

Web and mobile typography continued to boom in 2012, with more and more typefaces making their way directly to the browser.

Thanks in no small part to the lovely nerds at Google, web fonts that the consumer doesn’t have to download are now legitimately A Thing. Google’s ongoing Web Fonts project is now home to more than 600 typefaces, all of them free and Internet-friendly.

Also, we’ve got the @font-face rule in CSS3, which makes displaying new and interesting faces directly in the browser much easier on everyone.

Just don’t use fake bolds and italics and we’ll all be fine.

Also, you can check out last year’s mobile/web typography round-up if you’re particularly interested in watching trends change over time — or if you want to pick up some still-hot free typefaces for your work in 2013.
