I'd like to have good statistics of how much time I spend doing various tasks on my computer (I'm using Windows Vista), so I'm looking for a good tool for that. It has to monitor what application I am using, and in the case of browsing, what websites I visit (in Firefox).

Additional features I'd like to see are grouping (e.g. and under "Web surfing") and exporting data (so I can analyze them on my own, if I want to).

What would you recommend for this task?

ManicTime is what you need.

+1 ManicTime is good and not data-greedy. – Gerd Klima Nov 18 '09 at 19:32

I prefer ManicTime to rescuetime, because it doesn't send all your usage statistics to its server, as rescuetime does.

You can also use Wakoopa to track usage patterns.
