I am always looking for cool stuff for Mac OS X…and I have been carrying around a bookmark for growl for the last few months, and today I finally installed it. Growl is “a global notification system for Mac OS X .” Translation: something really cool that works with multiple apps. So you have mail checking mail all day and you would like to be notified of new mail, or perhaps you are listening to iTunes, and the song changes and you would like to know what you are listening to, growl will notify you with a cool little window.

You can do a number of cool things with growl.

  1. Have your web server notify you of anything strange going on.
  2. Using Growl, Rendezvous and Python for LAN notification
  3. Remote notification using growl.

So if you want something cool and useful…download growl today!
