    Would be interesting to discuss about a font viewer for Windows. I often find myself downloading loads of fonts and forgetting about them. Having a software that enables you to quickly preview is useful. Maybe a comparison between different software (MainType, AMP Font Viewer, Font Manager for Windows, etc)

    I have also had quite a bit of success with WhatTheFont: https://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/

    They usually give me a link for the font as well. It is very similar.

    There’s a Chrome Extension called FontFace Ninja that’s pretty awesome for identifying web fonts too. I like WhatTheFont, but sometimes it can only offer a best guess — whereas FontFace Ninja will pull the exact font right out of a site’s source code and/or css files.

    Exactly! And it saves you loads of time compared to WhatTheFont where you actually need to tell what characters are similar. There’s another extension called WhatFont http://bit.ly/1QAaZd4 as well (been using it for some time and it does the job)
