Foxes Do In Fact, Growl.

Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

The excellent Shawn Wilsher just landed support for Growl in Firefox today on the CVS trunk. End users can look forward to built-in download complete notifications, and extension authors can rest easy knowing that alerts similar to those popped up on Windows can be shown on the Mac. All this and more in Firefox 3, coming to a desktop near you!

This change has been a number of months in the making, and thanks to Shawn’s tenacity and willingness to work and find a compromise that everyone could agree on (Mozilla not wanting to import all of Growl into their repository, but Growl still needed to work) is commendable. A big thank you also goes out to the excellent Growl Team for their help in getting this all working.

So, three cheers for Shawn and three cheers for Growl!
