Hi,

Which one do you prefer on your website?

  • Using Fonts Locally
  • Using Fonts with Google CDN

Consider these conditions before voting please:

  • Pagespeed
  • CPU Using
  • Cache

Local fonts may be better for page speed but Google Font could be cached already on users (browser cache). So I can’t decide it.

Or If we use all fonts via Google CDN, It creates too many external requests.

Because both has own pro and cons…

Locally: Privacy focus, no extra DNS lookup, better load time if served via CDN with HTTP/2.

External: Bandwidh saving, a little impact on the load time, some time you may get benfited with browser cache for the common fonts.

What about loading query from Google CDN bro? As more sites load query from Google CDN, more users already have the file ready. (1 year browser cache by Google).

I think using query from Google CDN and hosting Google fonts locally will be best option.

So, I vote for first option finally :smiley:

I prefer everything locally, to prevent cost of DNS lookup, privacy, Censorship, etc.
