Typotheque Web Font System now supports Chrome

chrome blog

Google recently released a new Beta of their Chrome browser. This is great news for web typography, as all major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, and Safari) now support @font-face web font linking. According to Wikipedia, the percentage of web browsers that support @font-face declaration is now 98.63%.

We’ve just updated our Web Font Service to support Google Chrome. The service utilizes thorough subsetting of fonts, and to make the font files as small as possible, we remove some font tables that most web browsers do not require. One of these tables, however, was required by Chrome, so we had to update the system.

If you were already using the Typotheque Web Font System before this update, you need to update the CSS and fonts. Simply log in to your account, go to the Webfonts section, Edit the project, and click Save.
