Neat features !

BUT for Windows: The install file is 70MB ! (compare to 2MB for similar program)

Run by default as multi-process (I have 6 process running for it) with a total consumption of > 40MB !

Too bad as this program had the best features,as

  • Reset on idle (that really work)
  • restart break period
  • snooze limit
