Software > Stopper
Stopper is a simple, yet powerful stopwatch and time-taking application. The original application was created in Java, but in 2014 the whole application was rewritten to native applications for Chrome, Mac OS X and Windows, and a lot of new functionality was added. The Windows version is not yet released.

Screenshots from Mac OS 9
On OS X:
In the "older OS X"-version, when clicking on a menu item, or holding down a button in the window, the stopwatch and timer will freeze until the menu or button is unselected/released. This does not affect the "Lion and newer"-version.
If you are using OS X Maverics or newer, make sure to right-click on the app icon, select Get Info, and make sure that "Prevent App Nap" is checked.
On Chrome OS:
The stopwatch will not work properly when the application is minimized. This is due to a "feature" in Chrome OS to prevent inactive applications to consume system resources. It does however not affect the timer.
