Miura_Lab - Google Webfont Directory Tester

At Miura_Lab we like to be at the cutting edge and we actively test and explore new design technologies. With the recent announcement of the Google Font Directory (http://code.google.com/webfonts) we thought we would offer a font comparison feature, so designers and developers could test different font variations before implementing them on their sites.

All fonts offered by Google in the directory are available for use on your website under an open source license and are served by Google servers.

I'm sure there are big discussions to be had with regards to Googles announcement, but for the moment we thought a nice simple tool could help.

Apart from reminding me how awful they all look on Vista with Firefox, I can't actually change the font size of the body text, there's a selection box, but changing the point size doesn't do anything, it's all at 12 pts no matter what I do.

What browser you using?

Firefox, latest version. The size selection box isn't doing anything (it works on the title text.)

Firefox latest version on the Mac works fine.

IM Fell, which looks the most promising for text, is in the font list, but not in the test menu?

Cheers!
