Today there are a plethora of fonts available for use on the web. All major browsers support web font technologies, and there are many foundaries and freely licensed fonts available for making a site look just so. We no longer have to deal with the extremely limiting set of baseline fonts installed on visitors' computers. However, the rise of webfonts also means that there is a performance impact to using them. When the browser loads the site, it also has to load the fonts, just like any other static asset.
