comment New generation of Save icon that is not a “disk”?
@SuneRasmussen I feel that like in language we use words or metaphors that they have no meaning anymore, so in the visual world will still have an heritage that we'll take with us forward until there will be a need for something completely different because the times are completely changed on we interact with that particular piece of technology. For example your use of latin, make me feel that things of thousand years old can be still remain in our daily communications.

I was at Ampersandconf 2011.ampersandconf.com where Jonathan Hoefler declared they are working on putting on the web their fonts. typography.com/ask/faq.php?faqID=126#Faq_126 I am sincerely quite surprised that they didn't publish yet anything after all these months.

I do not feel that this is really a good solutions, I feel that in one file, you want to have multiple snapshots saved for next time that you will open a file.

-1 I think that the majority of google fonts are not really good material of fonts, they lack many glyphs, and do not have weights.

@feela the support show that the percentage it is low. Not are passed 7 months from the post, but IE8 it is still with us. All that you can do it is create an alternative for IE and one for the rest. What's the point to duplicate code for images (one for not supportive and one for supportive) if you do not have a really good use for SVG that justify the duplication when PNG it is good enough to handle many things?
