Amazing thing. Should come with OS X itself. I cannot imagine to live without this neat little app and the notifications. Extremly useful for mail, uploads, downloads, RSS updates, etc...

One of the best features of Growl is the AppleScript interface -- you can basically hook anything up to it via AppleScript to make it support the Growl notifications. Instead of using AppleScript dialog boxes for alerting or debugging, use Growl!

This is a great add-on. I use it in Adium, Mail, and Safari. Sleek and very Mac-like.

Excellent integration with Skype

It should be part of Mac OS X. The networking functions are what make this app so great. A download has completed in Transmission on my server ? bam, the notification pops up on my macbook. Awesome.

I used it and liked it, but I need a faster processor. =[

something that adds extra functionality to so many programs

I agree with the other posters - this really should be rolled into OS X.

Apple should hire these guys and roll it into the OS...to me, any Mac without this and Butler installed seems "broken"...

Hardware growler ist actually the part I love the most.
