Much better but ....

This plugin is good however, I noticed if I try to load my wordpress site in Chrome (with China VPN switched on), its still slow compared to FF and Safari. Also, I still see its loading data from font.googleapis.com

Any idea why?

Absolutely necessary in China
By , for WP 4.0

Being located in China, but using a host in the U.S. - getting the Google Fonts out of my pages brought an average 30 second load time down to about a 10 second load time (which is acceptable here). Could have deleted all this manually, but why bother - the plugin works with no problems.

Excellent Plugin to Google Fonts
By , for WP 3.9.1

I loved this plugin. I was having this problem initially due to the fact that the W3 Total Cache was not flushed (Make sure you do that if you have similar caching plugins) and I was getting those 8 external Lato font requests consistently from Google. Now it's working like a charm. Thanks for the hark work. My page speed has been increased :)

Simple plugin of great use in China!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Great little plugin that speeds up upload time significantly in countries like China where google services are partly blocked and thoroughly screened. Previously each page upload would get paused on google translator (10s) and 'loading fonts.googleapis.com' (10s). Now each page loads in 1-3s!
Thanks!

Does as expected. Improves speed of dashboard and load time.

Simple and effective

At the beginning, I couldn't believe WordPress was using third party resources. Then, I found the issues where WordPress developers were discussing about bundling versus hotlinking Google fonts and, from there, I knew about this plugin.

It works as it says: you only need to activate it! Plus, it doesn't change your database, so you can try it with no worries.

Does what I want it to do

I don't want that visitors of my website get logged by Google without their explicit will. This plug-in does what it promises to help in this matter.

Speeds up my local WP environment
By ,

I was getting irritated that requests to my own local WP environment were taking so long (should be immediate, right?) and noticed that one of the delays was an external request to google, to load the open sans font for the dashboard.

This plugin seems to work and speeds things up.

Thank you so much for making this plugin. I don't know much about coding, but I do know I don't want Google fonts phoning home! :) I spend two days trying to do it es-manual-ing and here was this plugin the whole time! Ugh... LOL Works great. Thanks again.
