Show DN: How I finally organized all my fonts(michellehickey.design)

    FontExplorer is definitely slower to start up than RightFont, but in actual use I haven't noticed a substantial speed difference between the two. Although since I've had trouble getting RightFont to recognise some of the fonts it's probably not a totally equal comparison.

    But that's only when I start my machine, so I'm waiting for email and other apps to open up anyway. I don't consider the extra 10 seconds it takes for FontExplorer to startup to be an issue, since once it's open, it's always open.

    For reference, I have 7,340 font families installed on my machine, and it's a mix of OTF, TTF and older PostScript font files.
