Was a bit hesitent to try it. But did. Some seconds to install and cleared cache. Redid the previous google page speed test and went from 80 mobile to 92 mobile. No google fonts loading. Great work. I even use a small not so popular theme for a community (bbpress, buddypress etc) - but the plugin handle it it seems. Thanks πŸ™‚

Nach Aktivierung werden weiterhin alle Google Fonts geladen. Leider auch keine Seite zur Überprüfung, was das Plugin nun gefunden und entfernt hat.

The only reason I tried this plugin was Google Maps. Every other source of Google fonts can be removed manually and in a "clean" way. Only Google Maps is not accessible. I hoped this plugin will generally block all googleapis connections. But it doesnt.
