Which browser does that? My Opera just shows text in 'default' font, and then switches it to @font-face'd when it's finished loading.

It also seems like an easy thing to change.

It's fairly common for font delivery services like TypeKit to use JavaScript in order to prevent display of text until the webfont has been downloaded.

Firefox, Chrome, and Safari

Incorrect. Firefox at least displays the text with the second-in-line font and then switches over to @font-face when the font is downloaded.

Those browsers show default text for me and then switch over to the font-face.
