04. Onscreen ruler and visual help

Every now and again I come across what I consider to be a really cool piece of software, which I am sure does more than maybe the author intended. Today is one such entry.

Onscreen Ruler is a simple onscreen ruler (!) which is designed to allow you to measure the size of something on the screen, in pixels, millimetres or whatever. But you can change the colours and the degree of transparency (through right clicking), and the length (through dragging from the right). This means it is a very easy onscreen ruler to use when trying to follow text on screen. And I could even have more than one at once!
