How we built it

"system-ui" generic font family

This generic font family allows authors to style contents so it fits within the system UI.


Safari and Firefox shipped the old name, "-apple-system", and has a bug to rename. Blink has shipped non-standard name, "BlinkMacSystemFont" on Mac. This feature includes aliasing it and measure the usage for deprecation.
