    I use Suitcase Fusion 4 on both Windows 7 and Mac OS X. Font Explorer X seemed unstable on both Win and Mac. SF4 is a little bit heavy, but it works nice.

    Suitcase sucks, dead since the birth of OS X. Linotype Font Explorer X is the best in my opinion... I manage almost 38,000 fonts with it, never crashed or let me down.

    I used Suitcase with OSX from OS 10.2 with my first G4 to 10.5 with my MacPro, and never had a crash or a problem...
    So, if you had problems with it, perhaps you should first interrogate yourself if you installed your computer correctly, if you installed Suitcase correctly, if you know how to use it, and, mostly, if your fonts are clean!

    Computing problems are often between the chair's back and the keyboard...

    Give the Font Explorer X a try, you'll love it... It's from Lynotype, the font guys.

    And I also had FontAgent 4 installed for a long time, before it started to act weird. That's when I installed Font Explorer and figured out it's better than any of them.

    I tried, with the 2 first releases... yes, the user interface is really user-friendly, the soft is really easy to ubnderstand and use

    But I came back to Suitcase because FE refused to activate many current fonts for XPress...

    ... and I had to work with XPress, as in this (old) times I received more native XPress files than InDesign files or PDFs from my customers !!! and as a printer I don't have the choice for the files that the customers bring to me: I could neither refuse their XPress files nor ask them to redo their jobs with InDesign !!!

    When I've used FontExplorer on OS X before, I found that the auto-activation for Adobe CS didn't work consistently. Also, unless they've changed something, you have to leave the app open all the time.

    Suitcase Fusion is the only app I've found to always reliably auto-activate fonts, but on the downside it's a HUGE memory hog. If I'm working in InDesign, it sometimes completely locks up my system, making a hard restart necessary. And I'm on a 2012 iMac with 8GB of RAM.

    FontAgent Pro is better with memory, and you don't have to leave it open, but in my experience the auto-activation isn't as reliable as Suitcase Fusion's.

    I know there's a new version of FontExplorer out (v4.0) — has anybody tried it?

    FontBook users: How do you find it handling particularly large font libraries?

    I decided to use FontExplorer X Pro because it is very stable, pretty clear and it helps me finding the right font better because of the WYSIWYG-function.

    In my opinion it's a great and really recommendable software.

    Font Book

    I use Font Book on OSX. Works just fine for me, even though using the font tool in cs6 was a bit of a chore. The beach ball would intermittently pop up.
