about LogExpert Jun 2011

This is a very honest comment made by the developer himself in LogExpert forum:
"If you only need a rock solid 'tail -n', then BareTail is the best for you. BareTail is great and fast (way faster than LogExpert). But it's only a tail prog."

That being said, if you need something more than 'tail -n' (e.g. extensive highlighting options, regexp search, tab coloring, plugin system...), you should definitely look at LogExpert.
