That’s definitely an ‘it depends’ question. If you want the best rendering quality on Windows, go for Cufon. If you’re planning on using a font for body copy, then definitely go with @font-face, since Cufon can be slow with rendering large blocks of text, plus it’s not easily selectable.

In IE9 (and future Firefox on Windows), DirectWrite will be used to render fonts much better than they are in prev IE versions. Till then, IE

The marketplaces here use Cufon for large headings and font-face for smaller buttons and smaller titles, it’s a good compromise.

The anti-aliasing of @font-face sometimes looks weird. I use cufon because it looks good all the time.

Totally agree. I have seen a lot of sites using @font-face and the text is hard to read.

@LoewenWeb summed it up pretty well. I prefer @font-face always since as a user it freaks me out when I’m not able to select some text. Selecting text is my OCD :)

Actually, most professional web designers are against using Cufon it seems, and prefer typeface. Check out http://pythoughts.com/what-do-web-design-experts-say-about-cufon -> Josh from Design shack and some others have their say.

Dose Google fonts have a Chinese or Japanese font in their archive? I was asked for such font replacement.:)

Yesterday a customer asked why some of the titles and headings aren’t shown. He used Korean letters, cufon failed completely.

Cufon dose not fail, just make the font with regular char sets. You have to tick an options to insert all the char sets.
