A growl/ubuntu-like notification system written on top of the UI widget factory


jQuery UI Notify Widget

Create Growl/Ubuntu-like notifications. Uses RGBA, border-radius, and box-shadow, so they're not as pretty as they could be in IE at the moment.

See http://www.erichynds.com/jquery/a-jquery-ui-growl-ubuntu-notification-widget/ for demos & documentation.
