Snarl: Growl-like notification system for Windows

Mac users love Growl, a global alert system that displays notifications from your favorite apps for various events (like a new email message or a completed download). Now Windows users can get in on the fun, with Snarl. While Snarl isn't a straight-up Growl clone, it provides a lot of the same features, like customizable notification styles.

Snarl isn't completely new, but the last time Download Squad covered it (in 2007), it wasn't ready for the bigtime. The only notifications available were for iTunes and a clock app. Now it works on apps like Firefox, Pidgin, iTunes, and Windows Live Messenger. Some of the available notification styles are also quite nice, rivaling even Growl's selection.
