When I released FontFriend 3.1, I mentioned that Google Web Fonts didn’t have a proper API, making things difficult. They still don’t have a public API, but on Thursday I was given “trusted tester” access to the new API. It won’t look that much different, but there’ll be a few fonts working now that weren’t before (multi-variants like PT Sans and IM Fell).
I’ve started using FontFriend extensively on my Soma Web Font Specimen (or, if you like, on the original) as a great way to evaluate Google Web Fonts, as the directory looks like an app, not a web page (although v2 of the directory looks awesome). If you have FontFriend installed already, you’re already up to date. If you don’t, go install it now!
