    What would you consider is a good page load for a forum ?

    I selected 4 options of the same font and I have a page load of 60. Would you consider that good?

    No, it's hideously bad. 2.5 seconds at max for all worldwide visitors is good.

    Wait... the page load google uses is measured in seconds? :eek: any font I choose is at least 18 on page load! :confused:

    Oh! You mean score on pagespeed insights? If so, 60 is okay. Aim for 80+

    Which forum is this for?

    This thread coupled with the other one regarding styles (https://xenforo.com/community/threads/ui-x-vs-flatawesome-or.93914/) makes it appear that you are attempting to get support/questions answered while unlicensed.

    Well, you know... it's just for theoretical research on how to reduce load times of pages. It just so happens he's on the XenForo chapter now. :p

    I personally hate web-fonts... mostly because of cell phones.

    When I am viewing a page on my PC, I have no issues with web fonts. But when I am viewing an article on my phone... often I can see the ENTIRE page, but its blank and white with no text. Then I have to wait 45 seconds for the text to load while the web fonts are downloaded.

    I have an HTC One m8.

    Wouldn't this be due to lack of a fallback font?
