Why is this update showing up in the list today? It's been out for months!
[Version 3.7.8]

As a long time FontAgentPro user, I decided to give FontExplorer a try so I installed the trial. I find it has some serious advantages over FAP with font organization and library optimizations. I also like the interface, however I think the list font is rather small. That said, it also has some major shortcomings that make me go back to FAP - first, the app launches every time a font needs auto-activating, and it throws up a dialog box for me to confirm the activation. FAP just shows a quick popup window and does the activation behind the scenes without the app needing to open and no user interaction required. FontExplorer's Classify command is also lacking - FAP added in a lot of the font classification info automatically but in Explorer most of the info is missing. And after I add the info myself there is no apparent quick way to perform a search of a specific type of font, unlike FAP. It's also frustrating to create a "default set" of fonts... you can add them to the Permanently Activated set, but if you need to disable one of those fonts momentarily, it gets removed from the set. I can't figure out why that's useful. So although I feel FontExplorer is more polished, I have to give FAP the edge for my needs.
[Version 4.0.2]

Thanks for updating it for Mavericks. It doesn't seem to work in certain dialog boxes like Mail or TextEdit (Safari is fine though).

Thank you for keeping this great utility updated and working correctly in Mountain Lion. It's one of those minor hassles of working in OS X which is solved beautifully behind the scenes with this app!

I've been a FAP user since version 1 and a strong advocate for years. I tried the demo of version 5 and I must say I was not left with a good first impression. There is nothing much visually that has changed. Perhaps most of it is under the hood, but the list of changes specify an improved and simplified interface. The only difference I saw was the icons - the main window is basically unchanged from version 1. Maybe that's why there are no screenshots on the website. Look into the documentation and you'll see the Quickstart Guide isn't even updated for FAP5, it still references FAP4. And to top it all off, the uninstaller doesn't even uninstall everything because it won't let you re-install FAP4 afterwards, you have to run a couple of commands in Terminal to do that (according to Insider tech support). The upgrade is not worth $50 for version 4 users.

This does NOT work with Mountain Lion. SIMBL is not compatible, and this hack requires SIMBL.
