    I've used a ton of time-tracking tools and the one I like the most is Toggl.

    The main reason? Task-based tracking. As a freelancer, my clients typically don't care about when I worked on something, just how many total hours it took. With Toggl, I can start and stop a task multiple times over multiple days and each time, Toggl will update so that I don't have to keep reentering a task for each date, or worse, taking a single task and entering the hours on multiple days in a weekly timesheet grid view.

    It also has good team functionality, which I've used when I've brought in a subcontractor on a project too.

    (Incidentally, I would actually prefer a pure task-based system that would accrue time for a single task over multiple days, like I used to have with a tweaked version of TaskFreak, but Toggl also has idle detection and better exports and team functionality, so I switched)

      Another vote for Toggl. I like their report functionality to see how many hours I've worked on a particular task/client project. I like the flexibility of inputting via a timer or manually. And for free!

      +1 for Toggl. Have been using it for a few years now and it's great for time/task tracking, and it's free.
