Here is the current status of @font-face ttf/otf support in browsers:
Normal opentype files work in the latest versions of all browsers (except
opera mini :p)
Adding special webfont formats is not worth the pain, and anyway the main
use would be old ie versions, that require eot which is not a really open
This seems to mean that we force web applications to exclude IE version
8 (and older) clients. As this seems to be a widely used IE version
today, is this really the way to go?
In my specific case openerp7, a business server application often used
in company environments, the IE8- share is probably larger than average.
It's certainly the most common client used at many sites.
The argument that the format is non-open: is this really a blocker?
