Understanding Font File Formats: WOFF2, WOFF, and TTF

As you explore various font file formats for your web projects, you may notice that we only display the WOFF2 format by default. We have chosen this approach to ensure that our interface remains clean and uncluttered, while still addressing most of your font needs. In this blog post, we will discuss why WOFF2 is the default choice, and how you can enable additional font options if required.

Why WOFF2 is the Default Format

When you visit and search for “WOFF2,” you’ll find that this font format has a coverage of 97.07%. This means that almost all major web browsers support WOFF2, making it a suitable choice for most scenarios. The only significant exception is Internet Explorer (IE), which does not support WOFF2.

Supporting Internet Explorer with WOFF

If you need to support IE, you can upload the WOFF format in addition to WOFF2. While WOFF may not have the same level of compression as WOFF2, it is still a widely supported format that will ensure compatibility with IE.

Considering TTF (TrueType Font) Files

TTF files are another font format option that you might come across. Although they offer partial support for IE, their compression is not as efficient as WOFF or WOFF2. Due to the better optimization provided by WOFF2, we have chosen it as our default format.

Enabling Additional Font File Options

Enable Woff, Woff2 and TTF

In case you require more font file formats for your project, you can easily enable them. To do this, simply adjust your settings and save your preferences. Once you’ve done this, you can press “edit” to display the additional font file options.

In conclusion, WOFF2 is our default font file format because it offers the best optimization and is widely supported across web browsers. However, if you need to accommodate other browsers like IE, you can enable WOFF and TTF options as necessary.
