Mozilla employee John Daggett has provided some try‐out builds of Firefox with support for the
@font-facefrom CSS3’s web-fonts module. Currently available for Windows and Mac only—no Linux build yet—there remain several caveats as described in his comment on bug 70132, the most important of which being that the same‐site origin restriction is turned on by default, which means that most examples on the web will not work until you turn it off.

Thanks to Mozilla, designers have much wider range of chances choosing how to design web pages :) Thanks for sharing.
Firefox incluira @font-face…
Firefox ya esta trabajando en la implementacion de @font-face, lo que permitira a los diseñadores graficos utilizar sus fuentes, las cuales se descargarian a la pc del usuario. Ya se encuentra en algunas versiones de prueba (build.mozilla.org/tryserve…

It landed in last night’s nightly, Still a few issues on Windows, but those are due to Windows (WebKit had the same problem but worked around it, Firefox will have to do the same)
It’s awesome to finally see this gaining traction after all these years.
There are still some issues with OTF style fonts as described above but those should be fixed for the 3.1 release. Hopefully along with the DOM implementation form the @font-face stuff.
I’m looking forward to seeing what sort of cool stuff they will add in 3.2 – keep it up Mozilla guys!
Finally they have added the support for @font-face, which is still buggy, but something is better than nothing. I can’t wait till all major browsers will support this feature. But also I’m a little bit scared of possible bad font choices that some designers may do, which can make the whole site unreadable.
I’ve found a build of shiretoko wich achive 97, it’s linked from wikipedia’s page about acid3 https://build.mozilla.org/tryserver-builds/2008-10-03_00:[email protected]/
but it’s not official as i can see, and so it does not update, but i can’t see font-face working …
On Windows, oft fonts are not quite supported yet, however it is a blocker for the Firefox 3.1 release.
Current hourly builds hit 93/100 in the Acid3 test and it’s not likely to go much higher than this before the release, one or two points more will be the limit.

Alexander, there’s more to fonts then just the vector outline. I don’t know much about svg-specifications but this optimize the fonts for on-screen display. I guess it just contains the outline, for screen resolutions this is not suitable because a font requires extra data (hints) to display nicely at small pixel/point values.
