Growl - An event notification system
Authored by: dal20402 on Sep 26, '07 06:42:14PM

I've never understood the wish for more popups... when I've played with Growl, it seems well implemented, but the last thing I want is more windows appearing when I don't ask them to. That stresses me out.

I like subtle notifiers like MailUnreadMenu, Adium custom menu bar icons, and the like... that stay out of my way when I don't want to look at them.

Growl - An event notification system
Authored by: joh on Sep 27, '07 06:20:10AM

I felt very much the same, but then tried the "Music Video" style notification (which slides in a semi-transparent strip from the bottom) and now I have no problems with that anymore. Windows popping up are distracting but that strip sliding in and out over the dock is subtle enough.
