KeyCounter is a user activity monitor that keeps track of keystrokes and mouse movement. By counting the number of keystrokes you make every minute, it builds a history of your effort on a given machine. For example, if you start a new document in Word and type "Hello", that's six keypresses. Once for each of the letters, and one for pressing "shift" to make the "H" a capital.

You can then gauge user activity by seeing when activity begins and ends, and show when you were most busy. Times of inactivity are shown on a graph, such as when you were making coffee or gone for lunch.

The program will watch activity in any application, not merely characters typed, useful for activity that involves lots of false stops and starts; Keycounter lets you see how much work you've done, not just what you finished.
