While preparing an upcoming blog post about proportional fonts for programmers, I came across a tweet by Val Head (@vlh), pointing me to programmingfonts.org. The website boasts the slogan “The most complete resource for monospace fonts on the web” and looking at the list of fonts, I’m inclined to believe it.
I browsed the site for a while until finally saw the link “Try them all online right now” which was hidden in plain sight directly in front of me:
The link opens a nice web application that lets you test drive a huge number of fonts, using a text of your choice. The available themes are a matter of personal taste, but this is mainly about getting an idea whether a font looks good before spending more time on it.
