From Gregory Weston:
Simple Floating Clock is exactly what the name implies. When Apple released Mac OS X 10.5, the removed the option to show the clock in a floating, translucent window on the desktop. Some people liked that view so I decided to give it back.
What's new in this version:
Fixed a bug with digital clock placement on relaunch.
Worked around an Apple memory leak related to digital clocks on 10.4.x
Seemed good until I opened up browser, program, etc.. The clock stays visible on top of anything you are running, very strange. I want the clock on my desktop but visible 100% of the time regardless of what I have open.
Here's a hint to make it visible on all Lion Desktops: After downloading this app download Dockless for Mac http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/12516/dockless. Within Dockless add SFC to apps to appear in the Dock. Once it is visible select Options>All Desktops. The clock will appear on all Desktops.
Everything. Just what I was looking for. When you are watching a movie or streaming video you can still see the time.
This is so simple to use I could not find any immediate fault with it.
A must have for everybody. Why this is not a packaged option with the OS is beyond me. For best functionality, set the hands to white and face to black switch it to digital and shrink it right down. Open a video file in full screen and reposition the clock to the top right corner. Set it to start at login and click through. Now you are set, you have a simple clock available at all times. If you require different time zones, simply open other clocks.
