I run ublock origin, so I notice when sites load resources from central repositories like Google, Cloudflare, or the popular CDNs for code, like unpkg. These resources are awesome and I'm glad they exist, but they introduce a dependency on an external service, which can change at any time. So I tend to avoid Google fonts because I prefer hosting webfonts myself. I discovered "google webfonts helper", which is a no-hassle way to download only the fonts I need for my page and then host them myself. This is particularly useful with frameworks like Remark, which I use to create presentations.
