Snarl – Cool Notification System

Want a cool way of getting notified on important events in your computer? Check Snarl.

For some of us who tend to have a lot of things to care about while computing getting a visual notification is way cool. I have first experienced the sweetness of it when I installed Ubuntu 9.04 which comes with a notification system by default. Unfortunately, Windows does not have an application like it, natively. It’s one feature of Ubuntu that I really miss when I switch back to Windows.

After some searching I have found, Snarl. It is really a cool app and sort of, fills the void for the notification of events in Windows. The application sits right on your taskbar and constantly posts notifications. If you want to be notified on events in applications such as Pidgin, Firefox, Thunderbird, etc. just download their respective plug-ins from Snarl’s website and you are ready to go. You might need to do some tinkering on the software for it not to be too obtrusive. I am sure, you don’t want to get all notifications, but only the important ones.

I highly recommend it. It’s free and lean software available at http://www.fullphat.net.
