dealing with googlefont latency

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Due to chrome's lack of a timeout and fallback for webfonts, I'm struggling with latency in Chrome - which is preventing an image feature from loading on a content-heavy onepage build.

I ran across this post regarding this issue and wonder what you think of the API at the end? Is it something I can implement?

?

(edit: getting an education here...)

FOUT is not the problem - at least not here. i have a banner waiting for fonts to download before the first image in the scroller appears. I want to get the image to load - by delaying the font load.

edit: and i suppose the 404's on googleapis.../jquery/1.9/ui_1.9.min.js and smoothness/jquery-ui.css don't help much

Are you able to optimise the images so they load quicker?

smushit etc?

the delay is caused by the font load... not the image. FF loads right up.

You have two versions of jquery loading and the font icons are no longer displaying correctly

I'm slightly confused as I don't see the delay / issue

The image loads then the font

chrome mac maybe? it is definitely waiting on fonts first, status bar says so.

thanks for the heads up on the double jquery. the component was loading it so I suppressed it, then installed jquery easy - definitely better. FF is still faster though.

I don't see a problem on my pc

The fonts are actually loaded async so they shouldn't hold up the page although I think that perhaps the slideshow might be waiting for the page to be ready or loaded. You could see if the developer can change whether the slideshow loads when the page is ready or loaded perhaps.

But not sure we can do much to solve that issue.

Site looks great btw.
