I guess what they meant by ‘offline’ is that the font (which is hosted by Google) goes offline, making it unable to be loaded in the page, not the whole website / the user being ‘offline’.

If google getting offline haunts TF, then how about ditching our hosted DEMOS which by no means is more robust or reliable than google’s server itself. Let alone other dependencies like jQuery etc.

Like Ivor already said, just use an appropriate fontstack with system fonts in it at the end and you will be safe.

Well, not exactly Google going offline, but perhaps a font has to be removed / taken down temporarily due to certain reasons?

Anyway, just stick to appropriate font stack and you’ll be fine. After all, it isn’t too much of work to add another few words in your code right?
