browser-support

With many improvements part of CSS3, one of the most welcomed by web designers is the new @fon-face CSS rule, which allows creative graphic artist to introduce almost any font to the web code, so it displays on the users webpage, even if users haven’t got it installed on their machines.

Previously, users had to adhere to a particular set of “web safe” fonts pre-installed on their computer, however, with the @font-face rule, developers can include the font file on a web server, and it will be automatically downloaded to the user when needed.

For more information, we would recommend you to visit: Font-Face website and for further documentation the W3Schools website.
