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

@dominiklevitsky WTF, I didn't know about this app. It's so beautiful and the UX is absolutely great. Downloaded, installed, bookmarked, shared 👍 Thank you! BTW... Just diving into Electron.

@dominiklevitsky Got a problem, I can't see any font previews. I can see font names, unfortunately, no previews at all.

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.
