I completely agree with @bitnix . Keep It Simple™ it is! I use it a lot to manage CSS lay-outs. Thank you, Omnidea!

FreeRuler is, uh, free.

In combination with PixelStick(, it's the perfect combo. This is great for guides, and pixelstick is awesome for length and angles. They're very complimentary.

Me heart this app. Great for fine-tuning CSS layouts and such. Thanx Omnidea!

I completely love this app.

No matter how simple it may look, compared to the other competitors, this app finally makes me feel SURE, that the pixels I measure, actually ARE the pixels that I intended to measure, so to speak.

Rulers manages to Keep It Simpleâ„¢, and for that, I'd like to say thanks to the developers, omnidea. You rule! ;)

If there's one thing that could make it a tad bit faster, adding an Undo function to its feature set, would make a welcome improvement; for those situations where you have moved a ruler too far, it would be faster to just hit Command-Z to bring it back to its original position, rather than dragging it back, manually.

Heck, while I'm still at it. A preference option letting you specify a snapping value in pixels, from which the mouse cursor activates a ruler's moving mode would be great.
