Remove CDN and Google dependencies
I believe that I read with Google Fonts that you can store a copy on your server and they don't get fetched. Privacy concerns are, and should be, paramount.

I agree that it should be optional.
I would like to have the choice myself.

It was possible once, but (for obvious reasons) Google has stopped that. However, you can still generate/download Web fonts, for instance on www.fontsquirrel.com (my favorite site).

Maybe it could be implemented as a set of URL variables + a switch that chooses between the self-hosted and the CDN set?
For all intents and purposes, the only dependency we call out to is Google Web Fonts, and that's mostly a theme decision, so that's not a problem to revise (either now, or in a future default theme)
Where's the call to bootstrapcdn?

an option to turn that off in favor of local css would be nice, and would also improve performance when http/2 is in use
Ah, skins. Yes, we could extract that out to a plugin...
Yep... I think "googleapis" in China is too slow... And many CDN are slow in China,too. I want to replace them, but I don't know what should I do. Is there anybody can help me?
many CDN are slow in IR IRAN,too!
this is a nice feature if we can replaced them!
