    Hello team,

    I´ve search in the forum but didn´t find anything.

    Maybe i´ts a dumb question, but: Which font family is loaded faster: system stack fonts or system default fonts?

    Thank you so much

    Hi there,

    they are the same thing ( kinda ).

    So this is a common system font stack and the one that GP uses:

    font-family: -apple-system,system-ui,BlinkMacSystemFont,"Segoe UI",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif,"Apple Color Emoji","Segoe UI Emoji","Segoe UI Symbol"

    In there we have a bunch of system ( default ) fonts.

    When the site is visited the browser runs through the stack and chooses the first available font option on that device.

    I run a mac so it will use the -apple-system font which is currently San Fransisco.
    On a Windows PC it will use the Segoe UI

    So on all devices it will never need to download a font, as it will simply use whatever is available.
