Browser and OS support

Web Font Serving

Fonts from Typekit work in all browsers which support web fonts on Mac OS X, Windows, and Chrome OS, as well as most mobile browsers.

While Typekit should work on all Linux distributions, font serving is only tested on Ubuntu. Typekit does not support Windows 2000 or Mac OS 10.3 and earlier.

Browser Version
Chrome 6 and higher
Firefox 3.6 and higher
Internet Explorer 6 and higher
Opera 11 and higher
Safari 3.1 and higher
Mobile Safari & Chrome for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad iOS 4.2 and higher
Default browser, Chrome, Firefox, Kindle Fire (Silk) & Opera Mobile for Android Android 2.2 and higher
Internet Explorer Windows Phone 8 and higher
Default browser BlackBerry 10 and higher

If Typekit does not recognize the browser, we serve a special CSS file that gives the browser several font formats. This "bulletproof" @font-face fallback format means that fonts will work in many other browsers, even if they aren't officially supported or tested.

Mobile browsers are supported by default, but you can disable font serving to mobile browsers in your kit under Kit Settings > Mobile Settings.

SSL font serving in Internet Explorer 6

For security reasons, Typekit is no longer able to deliver fonts over SSL to Internet Explorer 6 users. We and our primary CDN provider have removed support for version 3.0 of the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) web security protocol.

If your website supports both HTTP and HTTPS connections, we will continue to serve fonts to IE 6 users using non-secure URLs. Otherwise, Typekit web fonts and the JavaScript font events will continue to work over regular HTTP connections in IE6, while HTTPS visitors will see the fallback fonts listed in your CSS.

Browser support for

The Typekit website, where you browse fonts and access the Kit Editor, is designed to work optimally in the latest versions of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Opera. The site is not supported in Internet Explorer 8 and earlier, or on touch devices; you may have trouble using certain features in those browsers.
