Make a completely transparent dock Desktop
Although it's relatively simple (by editing three PDF files) to change the background of the dock, it still retains a dark-colored border line. There's been some discussion on various forums about how to eliminate the border, and it appears that this has now been accomplished!

'kfel' has posted TransparentDock, which will give you three different transparency settings for your dock, including completely transparent. Make sure you visit kfel's home page for some important notes about TransparentDock, as well as some links to other useful utilities he (she?) has written.

I think the link above to download the app is outdated. I don't think that version works in 10.1 try This one in stead.

This versus ClearDock?
Authored by: evands on Oct 15, '02 10:05:55PM

More ways to do something is always better..

Are there advantages to using this method versus Unsanity's free APE plug-in, ClearDock?
