Log_Growl is a driver for PEAR::Log package. This driver enables you to outputs log events directly on the desktop with the Growl notification system for Mac OS X.
What is Growl ?
Growl lets applications unintrusively tell you when things happen. You can know much more on visit official web site at http://growl.info.
What makes Growl different from other debugging methods ?
All data is sent via UDP to a listener application running on background as a unix daemon. This means that the debugging data will not interfere with the content on your page. Avoid echo, var_dump, print_r, that you could use/add and forget to remove once your debugging step is over !

Jealous because I didn't worked on Mac OS, but I love the Growl notification system.
I've search a lot over the Net to find a compatible Windows solution. I primary found this post about Snarl Windows Notification API, and I though my quest was over. But it was a great disillusion !
Snarl for PHP is not yet available.
I've concluded to let down to find a cool tool to allow to receive on my windows desktop any application log events.
3 Years later my dream became a reality.
I found Growl for Windows a Windows-compatible version.
Special Thanks to Bertrand, without who this Quest wouldn't finished with a Happy End
