Today we are launching a new forum that replaces our old Squirrel Chatter forum that long ago died.
A few months have passed since we released some cool filtering options for finding fonts on Font Squirrel. Since then we have been tweaking away… language filtering being the most notable change. However, the filtering tools are only as good as our tags, so I am in the process of re-tagging the collection so that the tags are comprehensive and consistency. In the meantime, be patient as the tags may seem a little screwy because half of the library is retagged. Stay tuned for more updates!
Whether you are a photographer, graphic designer, looking to create a portfolio site or whatnot, you will find a great template at IM Creator. So give them a try and let us know how it works for you and your website needs.
Last month, we released a minor update that included some basic font filtering. Your feedback and appreciation was great and inspired me to improve it significantly. Let us know what you think on Twitter or Facebook, or email me at hello at fontsquirrel.com.
Some type designers are criticized regularly for not allowing @font-face embedding in their licenses. Between Font Squirrel and our sister site Fontspring, we've worked hard developing the technology and making it accessible to everyone who wants to try it out. While the generator has clearly had a big impact on the world of web fonts we must respect type designers requirements as to what can and can't be done with their masterpieces.
We're constantly iterating with the Generator, and here are the latest changes. Among them, a tweaked main menu, OpenType feature-flattener and spacing adjustments.
The Generator offers web designers the ability to convert any font into easy to use @font-face webfonts. Some of you find it so easy and intuitive that it requires no explanation. Others of you need a bit more detail on the hows and whys. This post should answer most of your questions.
We've implemented a simple system you can integrate into your web applications to get at our font data.
Each browser has its own idiosyncrasies that will cause headaches for web developers trying to get webfonts working on their websites. This short post details some of the common reasons some browsers will fail to load fonts.
The annual .net Awards has included Font Squirrel as a nominee for Best Web App of the year. We're honored to be in the voting for our site and the @font-face Generator tool.
My son came home from school the other day having completed a complete specimen sheet for a new font. I promptly converted it for him. What do you think?
We are all very excited to finally see browsers support some form of font embedding. Hurray you get to use any font you want now. While we were all celebrating that fact, the elephant in the room started trumpeting...
