Web-safe fonts are fonts that are already on most computers and devices, and they work on all web browsers. This is important for web designers because it ensures that the text on a website looks the same on different devices and browsers. In the past, if someone didn't have the exact font used on a website, their browser would show a generic font like Times New Roman, which could mess up how the page looked and worked.

When you pick fonts for your website using HTML and CSS, it's crucial to think about your brand's personality and message. The font you choose helps create a unique identity for your brand. Big companies like Facebook, Amazon, Disney, and Microsoft have their own special fonts that make them stand out. Some of these fonts are custom-made versions of existing ones.

Here are some of the best web-safe fonts you can use for your website:

  1. Arial (a clean and simple font)

  2. Verdana (easy to read)

  3. Tahoma (also easy to read)

  4. Trebuchet MS (modern and stylish)

  5. Times New Roman (a classic serif font)

  6. Georgia (another serif font, good for readability)

  7. Garamond (a classic and elegant serif font)

  8. Courier New (a monospace font, good for code and technical stuff)

  9. Brush Script MT (a fancy cursive font)

These fonts work well on most computers and browsers, so you don't have to worry about compatibility issues.
