Good for Dvorak keyboard layout users where the Q key is just above the command key. Needs a preference to adjust the delay time. The graphic overlay graphics could use some work too. The part moving around the circle of the timer graphic is hard to see.

Valuable software! The 1-second delay is a bit too long for my taste, but entering defaults write com.dteoh.SlowQuitApps delay 500 in the shell for ½ a second is easily done. Accidentally quitting a software doesn't happen often, but it's annoying every time, especially when you have added the Quit menu to Finder.

A crazy simple solution to prevent you from accidentally closing an application, a rarely experienced problem but you'd wonder why it wasn't already built into the os. This app is next to invisible with no menulet/dock icon, unless you press cmd q of course when a circle will appear on your screen and quickly fills until you release both cmd and q keys. The amount of time you get is configurable by a terminal command found here https://github.com/dteoh/SlowQuitApps#changing-default-delay Activity monitor is your friend should you ever want to quit the app but I don't see why you would
