So, what you think? Obviously will depend on what are you looking for, the functionaly, design, and many more. But, which will be best in a common/middle situation?

font face loads faster.

Cufon is extra javascript. Sometimes flickers on page load. adds loading time to the page. Cufon sometimes looks smoother, nicer.

If the font looks nice as font-face.. use font-face

I love @font-face but it still doesn’t work in Google Chrome so I’m very iffy about it. Cufon is nice to but I only use Cufon for navigation and headers.

Font-face should work in the the newest version of Chrome, if I remember correctly.

I read an article explaining to use font face for browsers supporting CSS3 , cufon for the other browsers, and fnally the jquery “font available” script to test if the font is available on the computer of the user (so the font script doesn’t have to load)... Seemed complicated

@font-face is proprietary to non-commercial fonts, loads quicker and isn’t necessarily cross-browser compatible.

Cufon is more JavaScript to load, only makes the rough edges of the font anti-aliased and doesn’t work if js is turned off.

Personally, they’re both more work to make your page pretty but I prefer @font-face.
