comment When using fonts in Bootstrap, is it quicker to use the Google Fonts API or to just install the font file on the server?
You're on an intranet? I suppose you better don't pull anything from anywhere then.

@DA01 At some point I see your point – the limit of 'concurrent requests' can become a problem. But pointing to 'concurrent requests' in the context of webfonts (or other 'simple requests') just doesn't fit the problem. Feel free to read on over here: stackoverflow.com/questions/5017392/… or here: serverfault.com/questions/75054/…

Can anybody please support their suggestions at least with links or quotes or anything the like? I mean – not google links? Here's two links to people explaining, why third party webfont hosting is (can be) technically slower: feedthebot.com/pagespeed/web-font-options.html and bdadam.com/blog/loading-webfonts-with-high-performance.html But as I said above: If you're dealing with (popular) google fonts, chances are that the font is already in the user's browser cache – and that can make it actually load even faster. Cheers.
