OS X.1.2 and the dock...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
On thinksecret they have a screenshot of the desktop of OS X.1.2 and the dock in that screenshot has what looks to be tabs or tabbed folders on it. Can anyone tell me what this is. Shareware, a new feture of the dock or something else. The picture can be found <a href="http://www.thinksecret.com/features/macosx1012.html" target="_blank">HERE</a>.

Maybe that's it, but I cannot tell with the size of the picture. Looks like the dock with tabs on it. But maybe you are right. Do you use drag thing, is that what it looks like in X?

Just looked at dragthings site. It looks like this was all about nothing. But hey Dragthing looks pretty cool! Feel free to lock this thread mods. And thanks Dr. Zoidberg, that was a fast answer.

First off it's DragThing 4.2 but the picture is to show that IRDA has been included for PowerBooks.

Too bad...that would be a really great dock update!!! WTF doesn't Apple add this sort of option? They could buy dragthing and give it's creator a job at Apple!

The saddest thing is, this functionality was in early betas of OPENSTEP...

Yeah, they need to do something with the dock. My idea (that I've sumitted to apple numerous times) is that they have a button or switch that will make all the icons switch to your "secondar" dock (ie. your less used items that you still want in the dock anyway without cluttering it up).

I also think they should separate the dock. One on the left with your apps, one on the right with your trash (in the right hand corner, where it belongs!) & your docs directly to the left of it. With Auto hide this would work great (for me at least)
