Facelift Image Replacement

Looking for FLIR (Facelift Image Replacement)?  You’re in the right place.  

I created the web font polyfill known as FLIR to be an alternative to sIFR, however, it is no longer needed and is effectively dead.  Good riddance!! :)

Since the days of FLIR, web fonts have come a long, long… long! way and crappy workarounds are simply no longer needed.  

If you’re still using FLIR — dump it now for one of the many great alternatives!

If you’d like to learn more about my footnote in internet history, please take a look at’s snapshot of the Facelift page.  

Also, if you want the actual FLIR code for some reason, email me at, and I can probably track down a copy.
