How does the DeskTime web time tracker work?

The web time tracker is a simple and intuitive tool that lets you keep track of how you're spending your time on the computer. Since the timer is not a web app, but a start/stop button you see in your web browser, you can simply turn it on manually when you want to track your time. It will only register time once turned on, and lets you specify projects and tasks you’re working on.
