    I'm looking for a free font browser that will allow me to view an entire directory and subdirectories of fonts and what they look like. Does such an application exist or do I have to write one, myself?

    Thank you...

    Thank you, wolf68k. Believe it or not, I actually did my own search but I suppose I don't know where to look.

    For what it's worth, it's a good thing you gave such a long list because only two of them can preview fonts beyond the system installed ones and neither of them can do sub-directories but they are certainly better than nothing!

    Thanks, again...

    I believe "The Font Thing" Can do what you're looking for. I needed a program to do what you're doing and I think that's what I used.

    The Font Thing kicks ass. I've been using it for quite sometime now.
