The WebFonts is a great initiative for the indic wikipedia readers. I have
tested this extension for the Bengali wikipedia. I have checked form some
of the browsers (Firefox 7 & 8 from windows 7 and XP, Chrome 15.0 -windows
7 and XP, Firefox 7 form Uubntu 11.10) in different machines and in every
case i had to face the same problem, that the page loads twice and takes an
extra time for each of the pages.
At the very first time the page loads with the system default font and then
the whole page became empty and after that the browser shows the content
with the selected web font.
and the WebFonts did not work with the Android (2.3.6) default browser and
in the Opera Mobile browser for android.
