The Google Web Fonts repository contains an ever-growing collection of high-quality open source fonts which you easily embed into your Web site. But what if you want to use them on your desktop? A simple Bash script from Web Upd8 can do the trick. Fire up the terminal and run the following commands:

cd && wget
chmod +x install-google-fonts

Once the script has done its job, you can use the installed fonts on your machine. Nifty!
