Stopwatch is a platform independent time tracker for contractors, freelancers and anyone who needs to accurately record time spent on clients, projects and tasks.

This new version includes flexible billing and reporting features and you can create your own invoice templates using simple html.

Evaluation versions for Windows, Mac and Linux are available at

Note: Stopwatch 2.0 is the commercialized version of my old open source version previously hosted here on While the old version was adequate for most users, this new version adds billing and invoicing.

Windows users: if you install this new version and want to keep the old one, you should change the default installation path. You can also import the old Stopwatch 1.0 data using File/Import.

v1.0 was pretty handy, and I don't have any need for billing and invoicing (although the updated interface does look much nicer). Is 1.0 still available? I just went through a pretty painful reformat and am now going through the tedious download/install/update process, and it would be really nice to be able to get this tool back.
