Test All the Fonts on Your Computer at Once

I have made a program that will display all the fonts on your computer at once with a given text. You can check it out at All Font Tester. I got frustrated that such a program did not exist when I was designing a logo for this website. Most program gives a specific word in that font. They do not allow me to see the phrase I wanted in all the fonts on the computer at once. Since I wanted such a program, I figured other people would too. I used java to get the list of fonts installed on the user’s computer. Then everything is passed to JavaScript for the actual displaying of the fonts. I only used java because I had to. I think Java applets are ugly and take a long time to load. I used jQuery for all the JavaScript. Since it is mostly in JavaScript, it looks really nice and updates in real-time. Check out All Font Tester if you have a logo design project coming up.
