about Font Runner and NexusFont · Jul 2014 · Helpful Not helpful

I continue my search for the best fonts, free Manager.
After "NexusFont" I me tried to "Font Runner".
The interface is much more basic than 'Nexus', but it is less than small tools. However the exploration of files is much easier, this looks like windows Explorer with the "folder tree"...
which is good compared to «Nexus» it is possible to change the size of the text, however it is a little slower I waited about 40 seconds so that the fonts are loaded while with "NexusFont" it lasted not even 5 seconds.

I think that the interface is more for "Advanced" users, or the fonts designers... but if you want a good manager for this, NexusFont should be at the height ;)
