Some time ago I was searching for a nice decorative font for greeting
cards and realized that there is no easy way to check glyph shapes in
packaged fonts without installing them.
So, I created a simple Web application to browse all packaged fonts:
It simply feeds static (ASCII range only) WOFF data when
sample text is visible, thus it should work with most of Gecko and WebKit based browsers. It sometimes takes time loading fonts. Wait a moment if font appearances do not change.
The code is also available here.
UPDATE: the service is currently limited to show fonts licensed under “modifiable” licenses, i.e. no-OFL fonts are displayed there. In the future, we may display “unmodified” version of those fonts if their sizes are small enough.
