What did you do?


What did you expect to see?

A website with css that selects a font that is likely to be on my system or is sourced from the internet.

What did you see instead?

The website uses the Roboto font. This font isn't installed on Macs, but could be sourced from the internet with a <link/> in the <head/> of the website like so:

<html lang="en">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="">

I realized there are fallback fonts (Arial & sans-serif), but they don't look as good. Please link the google font. Thanks!
