Fantastic news. Accompanied by Google’s announcement of open-sourcing VP8, it’s clear that regardless of the in-fighting between certain parties, there’s presently a strong commitment to pushing forward HTML5 components.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve teamed up with Google to make webfonts ubiquitous and more accessible. Starting today, we’re making our Typekit font events an open source project called WebFont Loader….

We’ve just added these fonts to the Typekit library for all account levels, so switching between either service is as easy swapping a couple lines of code. Our goal is shared with Google: to make it as easy as possible for anyone to start using webfonts.
