Fairly good balance of features and simplicity. Also it applies the changes faster (and more consistently) than the other type/creator changers I've just tried.

It does take up a lot of room though. It would be really nice to have the UI switch to a small drop window that I could keep on screen without cluttering. If possible, this would be great as a Konfabulator/Dashboard widget.

Also this version can't close in OS X 10.4.2 without crashing, hence the bad mark on Stability.
