Chrome webfont bug fix

I ran across the Chrome 33 webfont bug twice in one day, but thankfully I’m not the only one having issues. Apparently it’s a known bug in the past few versions of Chrome where third-party webfonts won’t load on a page without a re-draw.

Commenter AceYnyswen re-worked another comment and posted a work-around (read: hack). I’ve implemented this twice and can confirm that it works.

I’m curious to know how performant it is.
