Web Safe Font List

Safe Web Fonts List

A list of websafe fonts that I use in web design web development projects. Websafe or "web safe", safe for the web fonts are fonts that are common among all versions of Windows, Mac, and Linux. It is likely that your preferred font won’t be available on all users computers. To get around this, you are allowed to list several backup fonts in preference order.

The web safe font names below are listed with the font-family which is in CSS format. The first font listed is the primary choice. It is also common for each font to come with a Generic Font Family CSS fallback font, such as serif or sans-serif, just in case the primary font is not found. If you know of any other web-safe fonts that should be added to this list please contact Web Design Maui and let me know or by posting a comment below.
