Kills browsers dead. (at least mine)

What am I missing? That's the tiniest 1em I've ever seen.

Doesn't work for me on Firefox/Linux.... changing the boxes does nothing.

And it kills my Mozilla dead as a duck. I don't have any other browsers on this machine...

That's a drag. Works fine in Safari and Camino. Craps out in IE 5.2 and Opera. It's still in beta, I hope they improve browser support.

Awesome. Thanks!

worked in Firefox for me. It's interesting, probably save me a couple seconds now and then.

Are Georgia and Trebuchet MS really considered websafe?

Works perfectly in Opera 8.5 for me.

Works great in the (Deer Park) version of Firefox in Windows. Very nice.

[This is good.]

Does not ever render in IE 6 on WinXP, and smply crashed Firefox on WinXP.

And this is a site by Web developers, for Web developers?

Lame.

Ayn Marx: I don't think the designer is expecting it to be perfect, hence beta. There's a link to report bugs.

No problems with Firefox on WinXP, though I hate to be contributing to the comments-as-QA.

So, I'll add, this is right up there with colorwhore.

For those this doesn't seem to work for, check the requirements tab. Among other things listed are:

JavaScript: In order to use the application, please turn JavaScript on.

Firefox extensions: Due to variety of extensions for Firefox available, some extensions could break some Typetester’s functions. Please do report troubles. If possible, provide a list of installed extensions.

Ah, thanks Roger.

Makes baby Firefox cry. Therefore don't care what they have to say about web design.

Works fine in Firefox for me. Great link, by the way.

In general, I couldn't care less about fonts, but I must admit this is very well done (at least as far as the user experience in opera goes). That colour picker is a work of beauty.

Works fine in Firefox 1.0.7 under Win2K.
