In addition to web sites, most font management applications have a feature to allow you to browse fonts in different manners. I happen to use FontAgentProX. It has a "font compare" tab that allows you to highlight fonts (active or not) and see them side by side: I'm sure Suitcase, FontExplorer, et. al. have similar features.

If these are web fonts that are hosted you want to compare you could use a service like JSFiddle or Codepen and in the CSS @font-face src:(http://foobar.com/thisfont.woff); you can add the fonts you want to compare against. To learn how to use Adobe's Typekit you can reference "Using Typekit on your blog". To use a Google Font: There is a button ...

This was probably done in photoshop using the new timeline animation panel. You can read up all about it at Adobe's help page: http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/creating-timeline-animations.html

I don’t know if this animation was made in Photoshop, but you can do it in Photoshop. If you open up the GIF and take a look in the Timeline panel, you will see that the smoothness of the animation was achieved using a high framerate (30fps, 254 frames). The animation also uses 246 out of the 256 possible colors. So it is possible to make a GIF animation ...

Javascript and jQuery are best because they don't lag web page loading. But they require programming knowledge

As long as I am aware that program doesn't have a command line interface, but does convert images to text and then to images. Source is available, so you can use it to write your own tool. You are right, aalib doesn't output images, but it does output text. As well as many other programs that work on command line. If you're using Linux, there is a command ...

Note: I have not tried any of these tools in depth. The closest thing I can find to a full animator for the web is Animatron. It looks like it renders to Canvas, which means it is built on HTML5 and JavaScript. Another similar tool is HTML5Maker. However, if you're just looking to create an online video there are lots of tools including Moovly, GoAnimate, ...

Inkscape has a large limit: 100,000 on my screen (10x what you need). The atual limit is because of zoom capabilities - it can't zoom out any more. The image is still fine in it, and it's using less than 200GB of memory. Even better it's completely free, and works well on all 3 operating systems. It saves as a .svg format for editing but it has an ...

There are some great online tools that you can make presentations on. The big advantage is that they are responsive across multiple platforms, so users can view the slides from the phone, tablet, or computer. Some I've come across that don't use Flash (like Prezi does) include Slides.com - My personal favorite of this list because of it's navigation ...

I suggest Illustrator. With its diagramm tools you can create any kind of diagram and its fully editable. Also you can output any kind of format in any resolution since its verctorbased graphics. Of course, illustrator isn't free. If you don't want to invest money, maybe there's an alternative for you here. I don't know whether those are suitable for you. ...

I know many people use https://www.lucidchart.com. If you are on Windows and have access to Visio, that is a good diagram tool as well.

You seem to be Using Linux, and already know libcaca. There is another lib that does exactly what you say (Image to Ascii on command line): Aalib. There are many programs do this. This one works both on Linux and windows. Doesn't use external libraries, full source code available, etc...

Gravit is another open source alternative, originally developed as a freehand alternative, that can be used both online and as a desktop app. And if you're on a mac, definitely check out Affinity Designer, it is by far the best alternative I've seen- even if it's just been released.

I've just come across a fairly basic online vector editor. Definitely a handy web app for creating basic vector work. I imagine it only works on more recent browsers. The vector editor can be found at: http://editor.method.ac/ The person/company that produced that free open source app, have also produced a few apps for becoming better at design both ...
