PixelPeeper allows you to watch a pixel on your screen and execute an AppleScript when it sees that pixel change. This can be used to alert you when a long operation is complete. For example, you can watch a pixel within the progress bar/window when performing a software update or installation, downloading or copying large files, or backing up your system. There are literally hundreds of other uses - please let us know how you put PixelPeeper to work watching your desktop.

To use PixelPeeper, simply edit the AppleScript to choose your preferred alert - an audible signal, email, or other notification - then click to more...

This is a great little utility. Uses very little resources, but provides the flexibility to monitor all sorts of changes on your Mac, and with the hook to Applescript the only limit is your imagination.

I'm using it to get the computer to speak to me when a particular event occurs in an emulator window. PixelPeeper doesn't know or care what app is running, it just looks for change in a tiny portion of your screen. That could be non-osx window, a game, a timer, anything !
