I've heard of several time tracking applications that can tell you how much time you spend using each application, how much time is spent on each website that you visit, etc. Does such a program exist for Linux?

See this related question about time-tracking apps, which includes in the comments links to several SO questions as well. – Adam Wuerl Jul 19 '11 at 3:46
I agree with @Rory, this question is not constructive. However, as a bonus I can suggest RescueTime which fits your description and has a Linux version. – Dmitry Selitskiy Jul 19 '11 at 9:18
@Dmitry: Thanks for mentioning RescueTime. I thought this wasn't a "list" question because I imagined there'd only be one or two applications that did this and ran on Linux, but maybe it's a bigger area than I thought. – jrdioko Jul 19 '11 at 16:08
Oh, and just for the record, it looks like RescueTime officially supports Windows and Mac, although a unofficial Linux client is apparently available as well. – jrdioko Jul 19 '11 at 16:12

Well, for my needs I developed WindowListener (win based, but runs on Mono in Linux):

It does exactly what you as of it: track time on windows, applications, supports tagging, searching.

Hope it helps ;)
