Adobe Web Fonts are a subset of the Adobe® Type Library that have been carefully developed to look great on screens and easily deployed on websites. (See the list of Adobe Web Fonts.)
Adobe Web Fonts allow designers and developers to go beyond web-safe fonts but keep type that is searchable, easily edited, and easily switched to other fonts. Adobe Web Fonts are delivered dynamically to your site by the Adobe Typekit®, Fonts.com or Extensis® WebINK font hosting service, resulting in a richer experience for your viewers, often with improved performance.

Cufón and Scalable Inman Flash Replacement (sIFR) are earlier solutions to bring typography to the web using methods other than @font-face. They give designers some control at the cost of flexibility. Adobe Web Fonts use the CSS @font-face rule supported by modern browsers. Web pages remain completely text-based, with font names applied to HTML text using a method similar to one used for system fonts like Arial and Verdana. A text-based solution is great for search engine optimization, accessibility, translations, and copy-and-paste functionality.
When you add Adobe Web Fonts to your website, they are hosted on some of the fastest servers on the Internet. Both the WebINK and Typekit services feature global, distributed networks with fonts hosted in multiple locations across the globe and carefully maintained for optimal performance.
Adobe Web Fonts are served by the Typekit and WebINK services from redundant data centers worldwide to help ensure fonts are always available. In the unlikely event of an outage, your website’s text is rendered with fallback fonts specified in your CSS font stack.
