Calm that bouncing dock icon System 10.8
Are you tired of apps bouncing Dock icons for attention? I've noticed that, with Aperture and Word 2011 in 10.8, if an icon bounces in the Dock for attention, and you want it to stop but don't want to switch to the program, you can just hover your mouse over the app icon in the dock. The bouncing stops.

[kirkmc adds: It was hard for me to get an app to bounce a Dock icon to test this, but I was able to do so with Word, and it works as described. I have to say that I don't see many bouncing Dock icons any more, perhaps because of Notification Center.]

It works with all applications on Mountain Lion.

An easy way to test it is to run sleep 2; printf '\a' in Terminal and change to another application.
