@BryceWrayTX

often blocks my ISP connection on websites that use it, so why would I trust ? This gets zero approval from me. If anything, this service just creates yet another pocket for cache alongside (that majority of websites were brainwashed to use already). If it's what to is, then I suggest avoiding extra hops and using instead.

@vintprox In any event, Cloudflare’s interest in CFF seems to have dimmed significantly since the announcement, including virtual radio silence about it on the CF Dev Discord. Maybe something changed internally — e.g., CF poked The Bear (Google) and lawyers got involved — and the CFF service will get quietly shelved. Time will tell.

@vintprox Bunny Fonts doesn’t appear to host variable fonts. Am I missing something?

@BryceWrayTX Right... I didn't quite target for that, but for my fellow designers and performance testers this must be sucking. I'm fine with discrete font weights myself and would include just 1-3 of them to avoid massive drops in page load speed.
