    I keep looking around and nothing ever has the right features I'm looking for. Font Book is what I stick with now.

    I am always having problems organizing fonts... really hard especially when you have a lots of fonts. Wish there's a light weight tool to do this

    Fontexplorer Pro management of fonts

    Even if you have Fontexplorer, arrange your fonts under Sets like this:

    Serifs
    Sans serifs
    Slab serifs
    Chunky
    Handwriting
    Antiquated
    Graffiti
    Others

    It helps a lot when you are working on graphic design projects.

    I also use FontExplorer Pro, though I use the older 3.5.3 version. It's still working just fine for me in Mountain Lion, so I don't see the need to upgrade just yet.

    I've tried out the aforementioned "Fonts" by Bohemian Coding (came in a software bundle), but while it is a pretty app, it's lacking in functionality—it doesn't really "manage" fonts at all (it utilizes the system-wide "font folders" style of organization). Even the OSX standard "Font Book" seems to be more robust. I only tend to use it now when I'm browsing through my collection.

    PS: As an aside, I also make semi-frequent use of FontXChange to convert PostScript/Suitcase fonts to otf/ttf

    +1 for Font Explorer Pro, v 3.5.2 on Mavericks, they suggest you need the new version but it runs fine.

    My only complaint would be the fast iteration of new versions with FEX, and that each version carries an upgrade fee, $40 isn't that bad for an upgrade, but it seems the new features aren't that necessary and it tends to 'remind' you a lot to upgrade.

    I store import my fonts into Font Explorer Pro, and only enable them when I need them. Otherwise, they stay disabled.

    yeah, spend some 30-50 bucks ... its damn cheap and it works great with creative suite and most other programms.

    we use fontexplorer x at the agency! it is great but i like suitcase better.
    although it has some issues with large font-databases

    I use FontExplorer X Pro for browsing fonts, regular old fontbook for installing them.

    Also, I sometimes use www.wordmark.it (a web based font browser, which displays all your installed fonts). It loads super fast so very handy when you're running the whole CS, and allows you to make quick collections.
