Be warned. QT may stop their services at some stage soon
You might want to consider them before you choose your platform. something to do with a merge with thinkorswim. My rating dates before I heard this news though, because I have very good experiences with QT and I hate to see them go.
From my experience they'll even add streams you have access to if they're not part of the program already
The software does exactly what it says it will do.

Quote Tracker is Excellent
The other drawback is my biggest bugbear - I cannot get it to work behind the firewall and proxy server at work. Believe me I have tried but have to admit that I probably know insuffient techy stuff to do this.
Everything else is excellent although in the UK there are a few limitations on the wider scope of the software. The auto-sorting of columns is another nice touch - sometimes if you take your eye off the screen the changes go un-noticed. With Auto Sort the stocks which are moving can be picked out at the top of the list (or bottom if you are having a bad day and not short). This feature can be set by the user.
Technical support is excellent with many questions being answered sometimes within minutes of mailing the support team. For many traders QuoteTracker will be a good first step.
The one drawback to this program is that you can only view the current day's data. Great for intraday traders but not so great if you want to look at anything longer term.
Seems to do about everything and links to the IB feed amongst others, for live tick by tick charting. Open all the charts you like at the same time. Loads of knobs and whistles available with a right-click on the chart. Haven't tried any other charting packages so can't really compare, but I don't need anything more so not likely to!
Back fill data seems a bit hard to come by for futures
