      SPHW LogViewer vs BareTail
      pros, cons and recent comments
      I love the clear button! It removes all current lines and shows only the new entries from this moment. But it does not touch the content of the file, it is perfect for debugging!

      LogExpert vs BareTail
      pros, cons and recent comments
      aktiniya Supports regexp! Stores filters and highlightings! The best alternative to BareTailPro! The only BareTailPro feature that it miss is outputting filtered test while entering filter. This feature saves the annoying push on "search" button. But! It stores the last view and shows it on reopen! I liked it a lot, and BareTailPro doesn't have it :) Glog has no regexp search, so it loose :)
