WhattheFont offers similar, but better, capability as FontExpert. The first take looks very impressive, and coming from myfonts.com somewhat gives me better confident 🙂

Ever wanted to have a font just like the one used by certain publications, corporations, or ad campaigns? Well now you can, using the WhatTheFont font recognition system. Upload a scanned image of the font and we’ll show you the closest matches in our database!

It got the first 3 samples I threw at it (Lithos, Eurostile, Caslon … I know … not the most difficult : P) correct, and together with Identifont is very helpful for a typographic novice such as I.
