A less stupid dock
Authored by: VRic on Jun 21, '03 03:56:03AM

What you really want is a less stupid dock that would stop popping when told to hide or fleeing from the cursor whenever you try to use it. That's what A-Dock has been for years under OS 9 and below. Maybe you could replace the dock with A-Dock if you can live without Apple's advanced Dock features like magnification and docklets.

For that you'll need a trick:
- move Dock.app from its default location to the Applications folder (otherwise it will relaunch as soon as you quit it)
- add it to your login items (it needs to launch once after login)
- quit it manually or add a script applet to you login items that says:
tell app "Dock.app" to quit
- try A-Dock X

A less stupid dock
Authored by: bluehz on Jun 21, '03 02:16:08PM

A-Dock is very nice, tried it for the first time today. replacing my standard Dock.app with alias. Unfrotunately A-Dock seems to crash whenever I try to add anything to it using the Shift+drag method. Has anyone had any success with A-Dock?
