Not knowing how fast Cufón could render when given a lot of text, I put a test together. PHP renders out a bunch of random text in blocks ranging from 10 characters to 1,000,000 characters. Then Cufón goes to task on each, in sequence. JS tells you how long it takes. Try it out here, but be advised it can crash your browser.
ycc2106 on 2010-04-07At 100,000 characters, FF3 threw “A script is running slow, blah blah” messages. IE7 just crashed. Safari 4 hung in there till 1,000,000 but then it gave up. It looks like Apple’s claims about Safari 4’s speed have some truth. I didn’t test any of the past generation of browsers, I may go back and add them later.
