Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Typekit requirements, part of Typekit Quick Start.
- Typekit is an online service,…so the only thing that you really need…in order to use it is the current version…of your favorite browser.…Typekit works well in Firefox,…you can see here I'm using it in Chrome,…Opera, Safari, and Internet Explorer.…Although it's designed to work in…older versions of these browsers,…I recommend making sure that you're using…the latest version in order to ensure compatibility…with some of Typekit's font-browsing options.…You may also find the Typekit site incompatible…with several mobile browsers,…but a simple test in the browser…and platform of your choice will quickly reveal…whether the site is gonna work…in that particular platform, or not.…
Of course, you still need an HTML and CSS…authoring tool to really use Typekit.…Typekit is designed to work with an existing site,…and is not a site-creation tool.…So, you'll still need a code editor to write your site,…and as we'll see later on,…modify your styles in order to take advantage…of targeted fonts.…You'll also need a hosted site to use Typekit.…
