Roboto: faster than a speeding bullet

This talk looks at the current status of Google's work to deliver fonts 'instantly' to Chrome users. With 'instant' fonts, website designers no longer have to choose between web fonts (that slow the site down) or 'web safe' fonts (that are only available in limited styles). Imagine being free to use your branding fonts in extra-light, book, normal, medium, bold, or ultra-bold - with italic, condensed, and slab variants. A brief overview of how the technology works is presented along with references to more information. Also discussed are efforts to make this work on other major browsers.
