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.
