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 select more...
