Font Browsers

FontWrangler

  • Concept of local font directory
  • Don’t like the UI

Windows Fonts Explorer

  • No concept of local font directory

FontHit Font Tools

  • Looks interesting, but I couldn’t install it

FindThatFont!

  • Open Source
  • One of the better UIs, but still not good.
  • No support for a local font directory

MainType

  • Supports font folders
  • Way Overdesigned, no immediate preview

FontMatrix

  • Can browse folders
  • Doubtful UI quality
  • Interesting features, like classification browse

FontXplorer

  • Suffers from some Windows95-ersims, but for once, this is a UI with some thought behind it.
  • Supports font folders.
