mTail – Actively track changes in your log files with lightweight application mTAIL, a Windows-based emulation of the venerable tail command found in *nix based operating systems. Instead of opening a log file to review the contents, mTAIL keeps the file open and displays it as the system writes to it. Firewall your attention by setting up filters and alerts in mTAIL based on keywords. The app will cull out events in the log you don’t need to see and alert you to the events you’ve pre-flagged.

This is far better tool to use to track the log files during development or on QA/Stage servers instead of using Notepad, Textpad and Notepad++.
