In case you did not hear, Google has released a number of new fonts to help beautify the Web. The fonts are not so much downloaded, as linked-to on Google hosted font servers. You don't need to install the fonts. The user doesn't need to install the fonts.
Code your pages or web site and embed the Google code and URL for your chosen font. When the page is requested, voila. A request is sent and Google provides the fonts-on-demand.
Brilliantly simple. It takes the guess work out of design, with font substitution and all that. There's some nice glyphs too.

Don't say Google gives you nothing.
