Some might think that each font has all of its characteristics, like thickness, contrast, serifs or no serifs, “included” inside of it, but this is only partially true.

A modern font loading strategy with the vanilla JS FontFaceSet.load() method | Go Make Things
Custom typefaces make the web gorgeous. But, they can also be a major bottleneck for perceived performance, particularly on mobile devices and in developing nations with less reliable internet connections.
Let’s dig in.
The problem In many browsers, if a custom typeface is declared but hasn’t finished downloading and parsing yet, browsers will leave space for the text but not render it until the file is ready.
