Web safe fonts are the best way to get a fast site as they load instantly across browser platforms. While custom web fonts like Google fonts are getting popular, they do take time to load and can lead to a blank website look, while the font loads.

Though there are many claimants of web safe fonts (like web safe colors), these are the fonts which will work across all platforms – Windows, Mac OSX, Unix. Most lists will need to include several backup fonts, but these fonts do not need backups. They are all free fonts.

To add arial font to CSS, simply use this
font-family: arial;
