Use FontList to view all installed fonts in your web browser.

It's usually very hard to get a nice overview of all your installed fonts. With FontList, you can easily create a HTML file showing all your fonts in your web browser. FontList lets you change the sample text, exclude seldom used fonts from the list and change the path for the HTML file. FontList then opens up your web browser to show you all your fonts.

FontList can only show installed fonts. There is no way for FontList to view fonts which are not installed.

When you hover over a font, four buttons will appear:

BView the font in bold style
IView the font in italic style
+View the font enlarged
CharMapView a map of all characters of the font

To quickly jump through the list of fonts, press a letter on the keyboard. For example, to jump to the font Verdana, press "V" on the keyboard.

If you want, you can create a print out of the list.

The sample text contains the Euro currency symbol and the "e" with three accents. This way, you can quickly see which fonts supports the Euro symbol and characters used in some European countries. You can change the sample text by editing the file "Sample.txt" in the FontList installation folder.

The default configuration of Firefox won't show the symbol fonts. This is because firefox only shows Unicode characters. Fortunately, a fix to enable the symbol fonts in Firefox is available.

Supported operating systems: Windows 95, 98, 2000, Me, XP, NT 4 and Vista. Also needed: Internet Explorer 6+ or Firefox or another modern web browser.
