X Resource Graph

X Resource Graph (XRG) is a system monitor that shows graphs for CPU usage, memory usage, battery status, machine temperature, network usage, disk usage, current weather, and stock market data. It is designed to use as little overhead possible while showing a lot of information about the resource usage in a nice interface.
