One of Mac OS X’s best features is its “Dock,” a bar of icons at
the bottom or side of the screen that lets you run frequently used
programs, and that you can easily customize. It’s a feature that’s
inexplicably missing from Windows, and surprisingly, missing even
from Windows Vista.
Until now, that is. RocketDock is a simple Dock program that you
can place at the top, bottom, or sides of your screen, and that
gives you quick access to your favorite programs and features. By
default, there are icons for a variety of features, including My
Computer, Recycle Bin, Control Panel, and others. But you can
easily add new icons by dragging and dropping them. The program is
extremely customizable, and lets you change the graphic quality of
the icons and their opacity, lets you use a number of different
styles, and so on. It’s simple to use, it’s free, and it’ll make it
easier to run your favorite programs and features. Given that, it’s
hard to pass up.
