I don't agree with Brendon Kozlowski (comment 5) - I prefer to track my time continuously, otherwise I always seem to put it off for days, which means that I can't remember a lot of what I spent my time on.

I've been using to track my projects. Free, and definitely not perfect, but it's worked OK. I'll have to check out some of the other ones mentioned here.

This is precisely why I'm not currently working freelance. I can handle estimating and time-tracking, but I'd much rather put in my 8 hours a day and go home. Perhaps someday I'll grow up and start doing the freelance thing again - at least part time.

I've been using the time tracker from lately to figure out how much time I'm spending on my so-called "side job", turns out on a busy week I put as much time (35-40 hours) into it doing little things like updating products or analyzing my analytics, as I do at my real full-time job. Which means I make about .01/hr on the side business.
