FAMSA is designed to produce rapid multiple sequence alignment of large protein families. It first determines the longest common subsequences and has a unique way to compute gap costs. It proceeds progressively to add sequences into the alignments using a novel iterative approach. The Authors claim FAMSA to be superior to Clustal Omega and MAFFT. A GPU version is available.
