It doesn't look like its an actively support application and so the changes in Mavericks is rendering it incompatible.

Afloat for Mavericks

I had it installed when running ML, and it seems to have survived the upgrade: still working in Safari 7.0 + Mavericks

Working fine over here as well, but I want to replace Afloat with something else.
Afloat is the only reason I have SIMBL installed and I'd love to get rid of it.

I mostly only use it to keep a Youtube video playing in Safari or Chrome on top and some other, less frequent uses.

If anyone knows an alternative to Afloat, that'd be great.

I'm just curious, why wouldn't you want SIMBL installed? (I dont even know what it does, but have Afloat and SIMBL installed as well).

SIMBL is often considered hacky, tacky and unclean.
It may lead to problems and crashes and all sorts of nastiness, having software trigger windows to get flagged for "on top" that doesn't actually run within the software itself (via injection) is to be preferred strongly, however I'm afraid this might not be possible, but I thought I'd ask anyways :)
