    fonts.com web fonts does not work with new Firefox 

    After automatically upgrading to the latest Firefox version, the fonts.com web fonts at my site have stopped working. Quite annoying!

    I guess that you really cannot expect a 3rd party plugin to work 100% with new browser updates. Still, this is not a problem at all in IE, Chrome, Safari, or Opera, where the fonts display as they should.

    Sadly, this issue is yet another annoyance in the downhill tale of Firefox. It’s slower than before, pushing out updates, asking me again again about updating my plugins etc. etc…and now this.

    Chrome has never felt closer to be my default browser.

      On the other hand, “Tabs from Other Computers” is awesome if you use multiple computers, and especially if you use firefox on your mobile phone as well. Oh, right, you’re using iPhone, Steve won’t let you… 🙂

        Aaaaaw…but I want to 😦 No, but seriously…tabs from other computers? Call me a traditionalist, but doesn’t that seems like a weird thing to use tabs for? Why would I?

    IE bug fixed for web fonts 

    Yesterday, I uploaded a demo page where I tried out the awesome fonts.com Web Fonts service…

    …however, Internet Explorer did not really like the page. Turns out

    <button onclick="$('.comic').animate({fontSize: '3em', });">Text can be resized!</button>

    was too much for Internet Explorer to handle. It should be:

    <button onclick="$('.comic').animate({fontSize: '3em' });">Text can be resized!</button>

    I rest my case. The bug is fixed. Thanks for not handling any exceptions, IE!

    fonts.com web fonts 

    The time has finally come to throw Arial and Verdana into the trash bin (Helvetica…you can stay for a while), since Monotype, Linotype and ITC (and others) have teamed up and developed a really cool service – webfonts.fonts.com.

    Web fonts lets you use more than 7,500 fonts on your sites. The result is not an image, but markable, search engine friendly and editable text.

    Just visit webfonts.fonts.com and register as a user. Then, you’ll be able to create projects to which you can add custom fonts. After that, bind the selected fonts to your CSS elements, classes and id:s and paste the generated JavaScript snippet to your site.

    Web fonts is free up to a certain amount of page hits, but the free account will not give you access to all the fonts. Still, 1.500 free fonts is a great thing, so make sure to try it out!
