Timecamp is a free online time management software. It’s completely free for 1 user without any kind of restrictions. The usual combination of services are available, timesheets, tasks, both graphical and textual, projects and reports. What’s more interesting about time management with Timecamp is the fact that you get a desktop client for syncing tasks and keeping track of time spent on each one of them.
Sidebar on the left holds a weekly breakdown of tasks that you’ve added to the list. Notice that the days of the week indicator above the main task list on the right only goes up to the current day. Tasks can only be added and time measured for current day. Clicking on the small calender icon next to the title allows you to change the week that you’re viewing.

Something with which we’re really impressed is the activity monitor that comes with the desktop client. Everything that’s done on the computer is tracked and saved online, every application, how long it was opened, which website visited in web browsers and so on. Useful for employee time management, but only 1 user can be used with the free account.
