If you want an easy way to look at your font library, Font Safari provides the most straightforward approach. A simple window with font styles on the left makes choosing the font for viewing a snap. In a larger preview window on the right, you can view selected fonts in a character maps view; get up close with characters using the telescope (or zoom) view; or you can view the entire alphabet, in both cases with numbers, using the snapshot view. We like the simple tabbed interface that makes viewing each type easy. You also can get keyboard shortcut information about all the characters of a specified font. Font hobbiests and design professionals will appreciate Font Safari's simple but effective interface and options.
