Less tail

Less is nice for previewing, searching and moving around in logs but tail -f is nice for following logs to which content is gradually appended.

However, if you use -F parameter for less or press Shift + F in less default mode you switch to tail behaviour. If you want to move around the log file again press Ctrl+C once.
