I like fonts, and I have a lot installed on my computers, but the more I have the harder it is to find the font I am looking for. Is there a website or utility that makes filtering fonts easy?

For example, list all san-serif fonts. Or list serif fonts that support italics and have a narrow typeface. The more attributes that can be combined to filter the better!

Ideally it would be a utility that works with the fonts installed on my system and then provides a preview of custom text in each font face.
