Microsoft brings full support for Variable Fonts to Edge web browser

Microsoft started supporting CSS extensions for OpenType Font Variations starting with Windows 10 Build 17074. OpenType Font Variations allows single “variable” font files to behave like multiple fonts, with a range of weight, width, or other attributes. Microsoft today announced that they are bringing full Full support for Variable Fonts (including CSS font-variation-settings and font-optical-sizing) starting with EdgeHTML 17, available in preview from Windows Insider Preview Build 17120.

To show how variable fonts enable expressive, performant experiences, Edge team has built a new immersive developer guide on Test Drive: Variable Fonts. Check it out after installing this build.
