Lasted only minutes - why do I need a Google API?
By , for WP 3.9.1

I can use Google webfonts on any project I like without registering.
So why is this plugin insisting that I first get an API key from Google? This requires that I log into Google - from this moment on they log even more activity on my computer - which I don't want!

Yes, I have a Google webmaster account (which I rarely use), but neither a fixed IP, nor fixed address (as I'm a digital nomad) - Google only ever gets used with a login on IE, a browser I despise and never use for much else except maybe some testing. Development work and daily internet access happens through another browser, which I don't want to see registered with Google. Full Stop. If I can't do something simple w/o an API from Google then I'll find another tool - basta! This was gone in less than 5 minutes.
