The term Web 2.0 refers to the second generation of web development incorporating websites designed to encourage sharing and collaboration between users, like social networking sites (e.g. Facebook), video sharing sites (e.g. Youtube), wikis (e.g. Wikipedia) and blogs (e.g. this one).

Of course, Web 2.0 sites are not only accessed through desktop computers with large displays. They are increasingly being viewed on portable web-ready devices, from mobile phones to netbooks and car dashboards, not to mention on TVs and through a plethora of video game consoles. The best Web 2.0 fonts, therefore, must look great at a range of scales regardless of what device is being used.

Web 2.0 sites aim to encourage participation and Web 2.0 fonts must do the same. In addition to being highly legible, the best are inclusive and accessible to all. They are cool, original and striking, but not to the extent that they are only appreciated by certain groups with specific aesthetic sensibilities.

Here are 15 great ones to download and start using in your designs!

1. Corpulent

Corpulent is a simple font that looks at its best in uppercase.

2. Airstrip Four

Airstrip Four combines straight and curved edges to great effect.

3. Automatica

This is a stylish, somewhat squat, sans serif font.

4. Rezland

Rezland is a really cool, curvy font. Unfortunately, it’s only available in lower case.

5. Ubuntu Title

Ubuntu Title takes up little horizontal space, so it perfect for inserting into tight spots.

6. Tuffy

Tuffy looks friendly and playful, but not at the expense of clarity.

7. Photonica

Photonica is a futuristic-looking seriffed font that looks even better when italicised.

8. Moderna

Moderna’s rounded letters are really well balanced and very attractive.

9. Arista

Arista is also available in ‘light’ and ‘extra filled’. The ‘light’ version looks fantastic when viewed on a small screen (such as on a mobile phone). The ‘extra filled’, on the other hand, is practically illegible.

10. Bohemica

Bohemica is an interesting looking font that retains legibility, despite its disjointed structure.

11. Lacuna

Lacuna is a timeless, classic font. It’s understated, but powerful nonetheless.

12. DustHome

DustHome is a neat font with perfectly balanced metrics.

13. Tin Birdhouse

Tin Birdhouse is a classy, tasteful font with a professional look.

14. Tondo

Tondo looks great in various colours, thanks to its subtle outline.

15. Delicious

Delicious is a complete font family with an easy-going aesthetic that lends itself perfectly to Web 2.0 sites.

  20. the only disappointing blog post to date. half these fonts in my opinion are sub par: “forced” condensed, “forced” extended, stroked paths that create “sleepy-eyed” characters and awkward apertures, inconsistent tailoring, distorted arcs… ouch.

  31. Nice roundup there – I personally prefer the ‘ Rounded Font types ‘ such as Arista , Moderna & Ubuntu . Another great free font in this family is Arial Rounded Mt Bold , as I recently implemented it as a custom font in my own blog and it just makes everything look so lovely now :))
    Love ur site , always frequent it- always great content .

    Best wishes :
