[webkit-dev] Updating and Enabling the CSS Font Loading Spec

Hi All,

WebKit has support for an older version of the CSS Font Loading Specification [1], implemented back in 2013 [2]. I would like to bring this work in line with the current version of the specification, and enable it by default in the nightlies. The specification provides support for coordinating font loading: querying if fonts have loaded, requesting specific fonts to load, and providing notifications as fonts are loading.

Other browsers have a positive outlook on the feature. Chrome has already shipped it [3], and Mozilla is in the process of implementing it [4].

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
