I still like the way Firefox (46) does it, a separate sub tab in the inspector.
(Weirdly perhaps, that sub tab does’t seem to exist in Firefox Developer edition and Firefox nightly)

Speaking of Firefox: given this test file:
<!doctype html>
<body style="font-family: 'Helvetica Neue'; font-size: 2em;">

<p>test:☲ trigram</p>

<p style="font-family: Optima, sans-serif">test letters other ō ā</p>

Selecting any of the two <p>, the font sub tab shows the two font-family being used. For the 1st para, it shows 'Apple Symbols' and 'Helvetica Neue'; for the second one, it shows 'Optima' and 'Helvetica' (Optima doesn't have glyphs for ō ā).
