Serifs are defined by the small lines (or decorative features) that trail from the edges of each letter and number. As Serif fonts are considered to be easier to read, they’re typically used in print design as the characters are clearer and more distinctive, making it much easier for our brains to process.
Just like Slab Serifs (see further down), there are always exceptions to the rule. Most Serifs will work perfectly well as a title or headline on the web, and some, as you will see by the selection of free Serif fonts below, will even work beautifully as body text, but please do choose your web typography carefully.
Bitter HT Serif
Bitter HT includes Regular, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic. Designed by Sol Matas.
The difference between a Serif and Sans Serif font, is that Sans Serifs do not have those small decorative lines that characterize Serifs.
The Sans Serifs, with their modern, cleaner and simpler appearance, are typically more accessible on the web as they’re much easier to read on screens, regardless of their font or device size. Understandably, Sans Serifs are the most commonly used Google Fonts.

There are many different sub-categories to serifs, Slab just happens to be the most popular variant. Evolving from the Modern style and at times called square serifs or Egyptian, they’re defined by having a bolder serif and are primarily designed to be used as print headlines and are typically paired with a thinner and lighter font.
But there are many Slab Serifs that will work perfectly well – as you will see by the free font selection below – in a smaller font size and could be easily used as body text.
