XWindows Dock is a better Leopard dock clone for Windows

Windows users that are fans of the OSX dock have plenty of options - RocketDock is usually the one that gets recommended. XWindows Dock is one I hadn't heard of before, and it offers some features that might give it an edge over the competition. However, one small failing right off the bat is that XWindows Dock doesn't support drag and drop - which might be a deal breaker for some users. I don't...

Apple receives patent for the OS X dock

Apple has received a patent for the dock utility for launching applications in OS X. Yes, the dock has been around for the better part of a decade, but Apple applied for the patent back in 1999 and didn't receive it until this week. The patent describes an interface for consolidating frequently used items in a "userbar." It also covers the way that items are magnified when you scroll your cursor...

But if you have dozens of applications that you regularly need to launch, you can quickly fill up a utility like RocketDock with more program icons than you can fit on your desk. sTabLauncher solves this problem by letting you create tabs in your dock.

UberIcon - Works great with RocketDock

A couple days ago Ryan brought us RocketDock, the best Apple dock emulator I've seen so far. While using it, I noticed that it has a setting in the options that allows you to turn on "UberIcon" support. At first I was confused, as I wasn't sure if that was just a mode in RocketDock, but since it didn't appear to do anything, I went looking on Punk Software's site. And lo and behold, I found that...

RocketDock-a Mac Dock clone for Windows

RocketDock by Punk Software is a great Mac OS X dock clone for Windows. It is bouncy when you mouseover, allows you to drag and drop new shortcuts to the bar, and lets you customize all the settings, including the icon height, opacity, and even edge offset. I really like this clone, because it ships with many skins to further integrate your computing experience. It offers a myriad of options...
