It seems that current versions don't have a full user interface anymore, but only a track (a bit like wakoopa), and all reports are on their website, accessed via an account (basic plan is free).

Does anybody know if there is a similar app for Windows?

Not bad at all. Works very well for finding those web sites that you know you visited but can't remember the name of of. Also performs quite well as a review of the sites my kids have visited during their mac sessions. The recent update to version of 1.2 has bought some performance improvements, but they have removed the Yearly view. Going forward, I have some concerns about how much disk space using this app might entail.

I think BigBrudda would be a catchier name. ;)

I like these kind of tools, except the fact that it's being uploaded, but luckily you can skip that by not registering on their site. On the other hand tho, this is NOT, NOT Freeware!!

luke77: Did you read the Features on the app's site? There's no "sensitive" information collected and you can either shut the app off or run it in Private mode so it doesn't log anything until you allow it.

I like the concept, going to DL at work & see what it reveals on my own workstation.

It's up to you to share the information though -- your ISP or Google is already amassing this information about you and you have no access to it... wouldn't you rather have this information about yourself?

It's a good idea, but not so good for privacy, in fact every site that i'm browsing it's recorded by this app :(
