13 amazing free fonts for your website

Why 13? It's only by accident, I wanted to make a top 10 list, but I just couldn't miss any font that I like.
Text content is the biggest part of an informative website, so it's particularly important to choose the perfect font and textual layout. That is even more true when using pre-made templates. The easiest way to make your site unique is to use custom fonts.

How to embed a custom font into your website in all browsers?

See this tutorial.
The 13 fonts showcased in the post are my favorites from the several thousands available on the market, because of their readability and legibility. I've found them very useful and thought I’d share them with you. Enjoy! :)
Note: The most of these fonts only contain English characters!!!

    I miss information on the licenses and authors for each font. I strongly advise against using these fonts anywhere unless their origin and license is clear or you may get into serious legal and financial trouble. A permission to use the fonts (even for commercial purpose) is insufficient if you are going to embed them by CSS (you are redistributing them in that case).

    I wish there would be some statement that these fonts are licensed under Creative Commons but even then I would like to know the origin of these fonts before using them.

    In my opinion, these fonts look too professional to be free - usage or distribution of unlicensed fonts is very expensive (it's the same as software piracy).
