mac default iconGrowl For Mac Publisher's description

Growl is a notification system for Mac OS X

Growl is a notification system for Mac OS X: it allows applications that support Growl to send you notifications.

What are notifications?
Notifications are a way for your applications to provide you with new information, without you having to switch from the application you're already in.

Here are just a few examples:
* Safari has finished downloading a file (GrowlSafari)
* You've received new email (GrowlMail or Thunderbird)
* You've received an instant message (Adium, or iChat with Chax)
* iTunes has started playing a song (GrowlTunes)
* Your laptop battery is low, or has finished charging (HardwareGrowler)

Growl handles the job of displaying these notifications, so that applications don't have to all do it themselves. Above is an example of Growl's Candybars display. We have screenshots of all Growl's various displays, including our own version of Bezel.

Why use Growl?
Growl offers you complete control over which notifications are shown and how they are displayed. You will not receive any notifications that you do not want, because you can easily turn notifications (specific ones or all of them) off.

Growl centralizes all your notification preferences into its preference pane - you can control them all from one place, and you know exactly how they are going to behave.

Growl is very flexible. Notifications can be emailed to you or spoken instead of displayed on the screen.

Ease of use
When you start up a Growl-enabled application, it will "just work." Your apps can start displaying notifications right away.

What's New in This Release:

- Growl now works correctly on case-sensitive file systems.
- All of the preferences selections should now show up in the toolbar.

System Requirements:

Mac OS X 10.7 or later, 64-bit processor
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
