Just as background information, I was clued in that this kind of thing is happening 😇


Curious how reliable this is?

CSS responses from the API should not be copied and inlined into a pages html:

  • The CSS response is specific to the user agent of the browser making the request to the CSS api. So CSS collected from one browser may not work correctly for other browsers.
  • We make no guarantees that font files at older versions will always be available.
