Just noticed that on each ajax search, HTTP request for getting Lato fonts from gstatic is sent by the plugin.
Changing the default Results title link font to Open Sans prevented the HTTP call.
It would be great to have an option in the plugin settings to use self hosted fonts to prevent HTTP calls and their performance impact.
Self hosted Lato font may include, for example, only English characters after editing original Lato with FontForge.
It will be smaller in size and there won’t be any need to request it on each ajax search.
It was added to prevent duplicate loading of fonts, as most themes already include some of them. I was researching self hosted fonts, just a few weeks back, but decided to not get into it. Mainly, because the font files, that I would have to include with the plugin would increase the plugin installer size many times.
