Description Brandon McConnell 2021-09-10 09:20:17 PDT
CanIUse claims that Safari/WebKit supports the WOFF2 font format (https://caniuse.com/woff2). However, this does not appear to be the case, as I am pulling multiple fonts from Google Fonts which load as WOFF2. They render on every browser except WebKit. This can be seen by looking at the title font here: https://codepen.io/brandonmcconnell

Created attachment 438067 [details] Screenshot All browsers seem to render the text the same way, at least on my machine. I attached a screenshot. (I'm assuming the text in question is the big title in the middle "Brandon McConnell".)

I apologize. I was actively trying to troubleshoot more on my machine. Can you refresh again now. In most other browsers, it should appear in Permanent Marker font like my original Chrome screenshot.
Comment 9 Brandon McConnell 2021-09-13 13:06:07 PDT
Actually, I am able to reproduce the issue on another device. Allow me some time to find a method to persistently reproduce the issue only on WebKit.

Do you have Permanent Marker installed on your local computer? WebKit/Safari won't use locally-installed fonts, because they are a way that users can be fingerprinted and tracked across the whole web. Other browsers will use locally-installed fonts, though.
