    Why font-display property is added to Astra?

    With Astra Version 1.8.3 and above, improvement is added with property font-display: fallback; for loading Astra Font.

    @font-face {
        font-family: "Astra";
        src: url( https://wpastra.com/wp-content/themes/astra/assets/fonts/astra.woff) format("woff"),url( 
        https://wpastra.com/wp-content/themes/astra/assets/fonts/astra.ttf) format("truetype"),url( https://wpastra.com/wp-content/themes/astra/assets/fonts/astra.svg#astra) format("svg");
        font-weight: normal;
        font-style: normal;
        font-display: fallback;
    }

    While loading a website, there is a very short period of time (100ms according to Google) for which text will not display in a font applied to it. That means custom fonts ( Astra fonts ) will be invisible for a small period of time. Once your website is fully loaded text will display with a font set from the customizer.

    For this short period of time browsers have introduced new property font-display which adds a fallback font until custom font is loaded.
