    Another one similar to jQuery Notifications:


    It’s jBar and it’s basically like the Twitter/Stackoverflow fixed messages shown on the top.

    Greets and thanks for the list!

    I wrote one with all the features of the others (and more) called Pines Notify. It is ThemeRoller ready too, so it looks great with jQuery UI. Check it out.

    I took another stab at this… mine’s built on top of the UI widget factory, is <100 lines of code, no images, extremely simple, but can do pretty much everything the others do.

    Nice! jQuery is making the development of ajax apps a breeze! This one in particular makes for a good app like experience…

    Great stuff! Will be attempting to use number 4 in a current project. Just getting my feet wet with ajax at the moment, but jQuery really speeds things up.

    Another component I just stumble upon is a notification plugin for jQuery – Growl on binpress:

    Stackable notifications that disappear after a while in the order they appeard in.

    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to use this for like LAN based clients? for example.. they all access the www through my gateway so have these growl notifications pop up from time to time no matter what site they are looking at?
