Web Developers and Designers alike are often find themselves frustrated by the limitations the web currently has on font usage. In all actuality, there is a very small pool of fonts individuals can select from for use on their sites that display correctly in any one of the many different web browsers visitors to their web pages may be using without resorting to other, headache-inducing methods of displaying type. Typekit, which has developed a new technology platform to assist web developers and designers with font usage is aiming to change that.
Through their new platform, Typekit has found a way to host a variety of fonts – both free and for purchase – that isn’t only incredibly fast, but it also serves as a kind of buffer for the way different browsers handle various fonts. It also provides an appropriate level of protection against theft of these creations.
The future is now!
