An open-source time-tracking software, Kimai for Mac proves to be an excellent tool for work time monitoring. It has a browser-based interface and comes with the ability to print out customized summaries on demand.

Pros

Freeware but reliable: Kimai for Mac works as touted, with all functions performing as expected. The user interface is neatly presented; you will find the date, time, and duration trackers on top, a wide field for entries in the middle, and four panels at the bottom that present information on users, customers, projects, and activities. Generating reports or printing summaries is a breeze.

Flexibility: The app can be used in a number of ways due to its browser-based nature. It can be installed as a single-user application on a workstation, and also as a Web service.

Does not have to be in an active window: You can close the program's browser window without stopping it. It will continue running and monitoring activities unless you press the red button on the upper right-hand corner of the main window.

Cons

Installation can be tedious: Installing the app requires that you follow specific instructions.

Only usable in fullscreen mode: The usability of the interface becomes compromised once you adjust the size of your browser window -- the different panels get cramped up or rearranged chaotically, making them mostly unusable.

Bottom Line

Kimai for Mac ditches advanced functions to focus on what most basic-to-intermediate users need. Being browser-based, it's highly versatile and does not even have to be onscreen to continue its monitoring function. This is a great tool for personal or small business project activity and time monitoring.

Developer's Description

Track and classify your work time.
Kimai is software that tracks work time, and classifies it. It tracks time and prints out a summary of your activities on demand. Yearly, monthly, daily, by customer, by project, by action. Due to Kimai's web browser based interface it runs cross-platform. Likewise you can install it as a web service or as a single-user program on your local workstation. While there are many programs one can use for time and project tracking, they tend to be overkill for my rather simple needs. Kimai came about because I was tired to feed lame boring excel tables.

Kimai does not have to run to do the recording. Even with a recording running you can quit your Browser. Your time is still recording until you stop it from any web browser that has access to your installment. It is designed to hold lots of users but you can use it for a single user if you need to.
