Update for the super fast, beautiful and free font manager

FontBase is a lightning fast, beautiful and free font manager for designers. FontBase gives you all the stability, speed and reliability of a paid font manager, but free and on all platforms!

Dominik Levitsky- Product Designer
This one is probably as good as you can get on Windows. Regular updates and always gets better. You can activate Google fonts, add your own fonts, create collections and much more! And the best part: it's free!
Ton- Mac'aholic
FontBase 2.0 is a decent free Font Manager if you want a reasonably good looking app with some extra Coming soon™ functionality on its way, but I would say that Apple's own Font Book is way better. It's more functional than FontBase, but hasn't got the flashy modern looks that the other apps have.
Blaise Ferguson- Jack of some trades
Font Base is a good free font manager with a lot of potential, and might be worth revisiting in the future when more features are added.

Font Shaming

Which fonts do top 737 ProductHunt startups use?

We scraped the top hunts. Which fonts and font combinations do they use?

Conclusions:

* Lots of system fonts

* Lots of Google Fonts

* A long tail of the misspelled fonts

* Shockingly, no Comic Sans!

Finally, some websites use Helvetica and Arial on the same page which raises the question of *font shaming*, a term coined by @tylerlastovich

Icons8
Summary: According to our fonts study, designers of the best startups don't use the trendy, cool fonts (surprise). Instead, they rely on old good system fonts, some of the popular Google Fonts, and they misspell font names a lot. 'What's your favorite font face?'

Finding the right font, just like finding the right romantic partner, can be a long, frustrating process. Apps like Tinder have revolutionised how people pair up by reducing courtship to a simple swipe left or right action on your phone - but what about designers on the look out for their perfect font match?

Instead of spending your Saturday nights slowly developing arthritis from swiping right to every Tinder profile you see ... and watching that last amount of self-esteem trickle away when you fail to get a match ... maybe you should search for love in the one thing that always loves you back.
