I used Cufon with some success for a template for sale on here. The reason I used it was because I was only using one specfic font that wasn’t free elsewhere.

Playing around with Google Fonts the other day, the thing I loved about it was you could easily include maybe 5 different fonts to give your themes a big-time variation in it’s look and feel – and best of all it wasn’t too hard to include all these.

Play with both, but if you can play with Google a little more because once you get the hang of setting it up, it becomes a breeze to install.

Plus because its served up by Google the uptime/speed is going to be amazing. With Cufon I found I got a wee flash as the sites loaded up.

Google is a good choice but your limited to what they offer.

I’m a fan of @fontface myself.

The answer is all: big headlines look crappy on Windows systems, therefore I use Cufon for that. Fontface & google for body copy.

Google Font uses @font-face. But the advantage of using a font from Google is that you’re off-loading the font call to Google which relieves some of your server’s work.

And you are limiting the users to that fonts. That most of the time do not work with the design of the theme. Font face is our choice.
