glogg is a multi-platform GUI application that helps browse and search through
long and complex log files.  It is designed with programmers and system
administrators in mind and can be seen as a graphical, interactive combination
of grep and less.
Main features:
* Provides a second window showing the result of the current search
* Supports grep/egrep like regular expressions
* Colorizes the log and search results
* Displays a context view of where in the log the lines of interest are
* Is fast and reads the file directly from disk, without loading it into memory
