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

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.

Can't detect system fonts or active fonts. Fonts must be copied manually into folder. Errors since last update. Ghosty email support, otherwise Facebook for support - ie, no ticket system or other structured customer support. Cannot figure out how to login and cancel account. 2 days ago I wrote to Fontbase that I wanted to cancel my service because the product is not what I need - I got no response and instead my credit card was charged. I call BS. Maybe even fraud? They said I could cancel at any time but when I want to cancel they ignore me. So I will be forwarding my correspondence to Visa and asking them to reverse the charges, flag for erroneous use.

Pros:

Looks nice

Cons:

Can't detect system fonts. Bad customer support. Charges to credit card after account cancellation
