Disable enqueuing of Open Sans and other fonts used by WordPress from Google.
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!
Does as expected. Improves speed of dashboard and load time.
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.
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.
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.
The activation of this plugin has improved the loading time of the site!
Thanks a lot.
Perfect, now I can develop offline again (no internet connection) without my connection timing out trying to source the google font server. Open Sans is a completely unnecessary font for something as crucial as the admin bar.
