When you use Process Explorer and minimize to tray, The icon turn itself in a graph of CPU utilization. I want to see that graph for network usage, specifically for internet usage. Example, I can download up to 100kb/s. I'm downloading an program at speed of 25kb/s, then I want see the graph with 25% of use of internet usage.

There is a simple and free program like this?

Edit I've found an "revived" version of FreeMeter here: FreeMeter Revival

I like NetMeter it is free and works very well. It keeps track of your bandwidth useage so you can look back by day/week/month year. It also works with multiple NICs.
