Common Issues and Workarounds for Web UNSAFE fonts

Jul 5, 2011   //   by Pro-Logix   //   Web Design, Web Development  //  1 Comment

Finally, website designers can unshackle themselves from the limited range of fonts that’s available once you aggregate down the common typefaces on Windows, Mac, Linux and so on.

Sensationalist terms like war aside, Swiffy is indeed an important creation.

But wait, you might say, didn’t Adobe release something just like this? Sure Adobe released a similar experiment, Wallaby, in March of this year, but it only supports the most basic Flash features. Swiffy has taken an important step further: emulating the ActionScript Virtual Machine.
