Cloud.typography Browser Support Now Goes to 11
Cloud.typography is designed to identify the type of browser viewing a web page, and to respond with exactly the right kind of fonts. This offers advantages in terms of both render quality and filesize: IE6 for Windows gets the additional help it needs to render small type crisply, and Safari for iOS gets fonts that aren’t encumbered by excess data. Now, we’ve supplemented Cloud.typography’s long list of browsers and font types with a safety net, designed to deliver industry-standard woff files to any browser it doesn’t recognize. As a result, you’ll now see web fonts in new places, from the browser built into the Google app for iOS, to the preview tool inside Coda, the great web development app from Panic.
Best part: there’s nothing you need to do. All of these updates are already online, and delivering for every Cloud.typography project. Enjoy! —NW
