Noticed that your Macintosh's clock tends to drift over time? NetChronometer can take care of it!

NetChronometer will synchronize the date and time of your Macintosh with a highly accurate network time server over the internet. You can even set up NetChronometer to synchronize with the time server periodically, for unattended operation.

And, because it's an application, you can easily free up the memory consumed by NetChronometer just by quitting the application. Apple's Time Synchronizer (first included in Mac OS 8.5) installs a background extension that consumes 176k of memory all the time.

A comprehensive list of network time servers can be found on the NTP.servers web site.

NetChronometer requires System 7 or later, and a 68020-based Macintosh or better. NetChronometer comes in both 68K and PowerPC versions. NetChronometer requires a direct or dial-in internet connection. It supports Open Transport or "classic" Macintosh TCP/IP.

NetChronometer is not supported as a "Classic" app under OS X.

NetChronometer is Appearance Manager-savvy.

NOTE: NetChronometer cannot access the internet through a proxy server or similar internet firewall.
