Keep in mind, this wasteful bloat isn't just on the web. I'm leaving names out, but I recall one organization paid something like $60K for an exclusive web font that looked 99.9% the same as a free to use Google Font. And everyone knew it at the time of purchase. So, not only is the look not really exclusive, but they could've also saved $60K. The bigger the company the less they care about "small" amounts like that though.

And you'll be glad to know, they'll be happy to track people to recoup that money back. So, the next time you see a webpage that is sluggish... remember the fonts man. Remember the fonts. Laugh | :laugh:
