Oh no! I blocked web fonts on my browser and forgot every loves to use icon fonts instead of SVGs 🤦

Look at the state of this UI 😂 Squares everywhere! 🙃

@matt it's because it has an animation when clicked.

I found out the boost icon was different from the othe back when i was customizing the appearance of mastodon on my browser

@matt did you just boost me to see the animation ? Cause my post surely didn’t deserve it :derpy:

@Guerin Who are you?? The boost sheriff ??? 🚔 Hehe. No, I just like to aggressively boost sometimes. And sometimes boosting replies leads people back to the original thread because they’re curious about the topic. 🧵

@matt damn, my cover is busted ! 🔁 👮

anyway, keep boosting as you wish, i was just picturing you clicking the boost button just to see it animate in the middle of all your blank squares ^^

@dustin @matt it just rotates doesn’t it ? The shape isn’t changing as far as i remember

@matt It's a big pain to update all the various uses of font-awesome in the UI but yes it would be nice to switch to svg one day

@Gargron I guess one of those thankless tasks which is awkward and so nobody wants to pick up 😛

This is one of the reasons why open source is never up to the standard of big tech - and why tech companies pay good money, so they can pay someone to do these boring small tweaks to the product. 😆

I wish I could code better; I'd do it myself.

@matt I made that switch a few years ago, but eventually gave up on it because it broke so much of the web :(

@ward I already use @better on iOS but am trying out Blockbear! in addition - and they have an option to block web fonts too.

Which is nice, but you see what happens. 😊
