Web Safe Fonts

Web Design

When designing a website, choosing a font that compliments your site’s overall look and feel is an important. There is one thing to keep in mind however, not every font you have access to on your computer is installed on every computer in the world.

What does that mean?

It means there is only a small subset of fonts that are what we refer to as browser safe or web safe fonts. When creating a website you should stick to these fonts as they will be displayed properly across all web browsers. If you choose a font that is not part of this list you run the risk of the person visiting your site not having the font installed. When that happens the browser chooses a font which may or may not be complimentary to your site.
