Con Dashboard is too static and not that useful for a small team or single users
There is no way to customize the dashboard, on top of this the info provided is all but useless on small teams or with single users. Basically it should allow the user to customize to their experience, but sadly does not do so.
Con Stable version requires Chrome
The stable version of Toggl on Linux installs as a Chrome app thus Chrome has to be installed on the machine and run (it can be run as a process in the background). A native client is in the works, but it's still in beta.
