    Nice site. I personally use dafont.com, but they don’t seem to get that much new stuff.

    ive been a fan of dafont.com ever since i came across it a year ago. fonts500.com looks like it has a nice browse-able selection though!

  3. Paul says:

    I’ve always used dafont as well. It’s just very user friendly with lots of search options and the ability to use your own text input. Sounds like fonts500 offers the same, but I’ll now have two reliable font sites to choose from.

    Thank you!… This has got to be the best resource for free fonts I’ve ever seen!

    Definitely bookmarking this one…

    Ya’ll might be interested in http://www.urbanfonts.com too

    They lack a decent search … a pre-req for any site with more than 100 of anything :P
    I like http://www.abstractfonts.com as well.

    I’ve always gone for dafont as well. Fonts 500 is down—maybe everyone flooded their site after you posted about it? Hee.

  9. Derek says:

    Fonts 500 is definitely taking a hit from all the major sites linking to it. Let’s hope it comes back soon.

    im like the most, always used dafont as well. it was my first adress – fonts500 still down, hope to see this page back in action, you all gave a good feedback

  11. Angela says:

    Well, Fonts 500 is “back” — none of the features Derek mentioned, alas, but a zip file supposedly containing all the fonts (and a note that their power supply escaped, hee hee). The download looks promising, although I’ll know in an hour (the download’s crawling at 9kbps).

    Fonts fonts fonts!

  12. Derek says:

    Yup, they definitely are back. Not in the full form that they were when I initially loaded the website… I’ve mirrored the current Top 500 fonts. You can download the 26MB ZIP and manually sift through the fonts. I’ll take this link down when the site returns.

  13. Angela says:

    My download from their site’s finished (a while back) and I’m loving the fonts–I have a few of them already but one can’t beat 500 fabulous fonts in one download! I’m definitely recommending these.
