Our Review:

Sue Fisher's The Font Thing is very good for a beta. It is easier to use than AMP Font Viewer and Font Frenzy and has some features that they don't.

The view options are varied including the ability to create more than one sample text. You can group fonts in collections which you can then install or uninstall together. I also had some problems installing it in Windows so I used the portable version.

I much prefer newer software even when it doesn't offer as many features. For this reason, I would bypass The Font Thing and Font Xplorer and look at software that offers new features and is being updated. Such software will move up the rankings.
