            Bug ID: 183210
           Summary: [FreeType] Remove FontPlatformData fallbacks
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal

They are only used by FontCache::systemFallbackForCharacters() where a direct FcFontMatch provides the same results in a more efficient way. This produces better results in 3 tests:


For some reason when using the fallbacks to get the system fallback font the non-bold font is selected for H1, while using FcFontMatch returns the right bold font. I can only reproduce this inside the testing environment, so maybe it's not actually a bug, but in the best case removing the fallbacks doesn't regress.
