Lightweight and simple, like SAI but free.
It has more tools, also templates and comic panels.

The program is similar to that of Paint Tool Sai, but better. The program offers more layer effects (Multiply, Burn, Doge, Luminosity, etc.), and the programs provides a smooth texture. It doesn't have the option to change the brush or canvas texture, but I never used that option in PST in the first place, not to mention it's free. I was appalled at the fact that such a high quality program does not need to be purchased. I recommend this for all!

You're totally right!!! I adore PTS, and FireAlpaca is like an updated version of it. My first impression of FA was that it is very similar to PTS as well, and I felt very comfortable editing and customizing new brushes. I find the feature of making folders for the brushes a very nice touch. The rotating picture is quite nice and smooth as well. I like how there is a Gradient and Text tool, something that PTS doesn't have. When making a new illustration, there is an option where you can select to have a manga page. I find this very appealing to any mangakas who wants to make comics. I haven't used it yet because I recently downloaded it but will try it out later. The only problem that I have is I wish there was an "erasing the entire page" tool on a layer like PTS has, but it's no big deal. I can always erase and make a new one.

Overall, I also recommend this for everybody! <3
