Typekit now fully supports Opera
We are happy to report that Typekit now has full support for serving fonts to the Opera browser. We’ve been dealing with small inconsistencies in how that browser handled our method of font serving, but it’s been resolved with changes on our side and the release of Opera 10.6. To upgrade your site, just sign into Typekit and republish your kit.
The change is especially poignant for us, since it was Opera’s CTO Håkon Lie who re-ignited web typography with his seminal article, “CSS @ Ten: The Next Big Thing” in A List Apart nearly three years ago. In it, he asked what many of us had been thinking for a decade, “But shouldn’t web designers have access to a wider selection of fonts and be able to use them without having to resort to creating background images?”
It’s been a lot of work to achieve that vision, and it still feels like we’re just getting started. Our Opera support, for example, doesn’t yet include the Linux version and we’re still working on adding screenshots to our specimen pages. But we’ll continue working on not only those features, but also our goal of getting beautiful typography onto every page on the web.
