— It's compressed opentype / truetype with additional metadata

— 

I'm having very slow load times(>20seconds) due to fonts.googleapis.com.. Anyone else facing this issue?

— Never used Google fonts.

— Yup never for my site

— Issue is i am not able to browse as most of the sites use googlefonts 😅

— I have blocked the domain so that loading time is not affected, but some sites dont work fine without googlefonts

— Doesn't it cache or something? Load a font for a site and you have it for all of them

— Nope.. It fetches for every url.. The http request to googlefonts is never completed

— How did you block the domain

— /etc/hosts - pointed the domain to localhost

— I'd use ABP's "blocked websites" feature

— Point it to non-existing address, like 0.0.0.0
