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.

If like me you have used BareTail for years but wanted something more, you will find this to be an excellent upgrade. Finally I can search!

I beats BareTail and is a free alternative to the commercial Hoo WinTail which has some more features but not much.
