    Pros: 

    Free. Syncs to Google fonts smoothly. Nice interface. Recognizes OTF, TTF, and web fonts. Very easy to install.

    Cons: 

    Doesn't recognize PostScript and old True Type formats.

    I recommended this today to a client. We both experimented with it and liked it a lot.

@dominiklevitsky UI is nice and simple but it's very fuzzy on retina screens.

Some kind of categorisation by say serif/sans-serif/display etc would be great! Otherwise this is exactly what I've been waiting for! Thank you!

This font manager looks great 😊. I will download it once I'm on my PC. One thing I noticed was that on mobile there isn't a single image of how the font manager looks like - only when I hit (request desktop site.) I know this product is meant to be used on a desktop but lots of people visit from a mobile first.
