Grandfather Clock is a desktop clock built for the Yahoo! Widget Engine that resembles a grandfather clock, as the name implies. It comes packed with numerous customization preferences to please all types of users.

The interface is made from a circular frame that you can move anywhere on the screen using the mouse cursor. The clock integrates sounds that you can mute permanently or just for a specific time interval (5, 10 or 15 minutes).

As far as customization is concerned, you can hide the winding holes, hash marks, background, manufacturer's logo and seconds. Plus, you can modify the border and numbers display mode, enable optimization to decrease CPU, hide the glass and temporary mute shadow, as well as change the frame size.

When it comes to sounds, you can enable speak-time on double-click, change the chime type, set a timer for turning sounds on and off, and more. Thanks to the default Yahoo! Widget Engine options, you can set the frame to stay on top or below all the other windows, to ignore mouse events and to prevent dragging.

Grandfather Clock uses low CPU and RAM, so it doesn't slow down performance or affect user activity. We have not experienced any issues in our tests, since the widget did not hang or crash. All in all, Grandfather Clock comes bundled with plenty of customization options for all users.
