Stop using tail

Up until recently I often found myself switching back and forth between using tail to monitor a file and less or vimto page through it. I cannot understand how I missed the option, but when viewing a file with less, simply press F and it will go into monitoring mode. And by interrupting you go back to paging mode. So very convenient and it involves less context switching.
