Take the Dock. Please. It’s not that there’s really anything wrong with the Mac’s Dock. It’s utilitarian. It’s simple to use. It can be hidden. It can hold plenty of apps and documents. To a point. It can be customized and configured to be more useful. To a point.
The Dock does what it does and that’s all it does. Missing is one of the great user interface features of the 21st century. Tabs. Think about it. If the Dock did tabs a single click could open up a whole new Dock. Multiple tabs would display a one-click way to store more icons and folders in more Docks.
That’s what Tab Launcher does.
This inexpensive Mac tool works like the Dock, but with 21st century features. Tabs. Click a tab and more icons appear on the dock that’s similar to the Dock only better.
Look at this and compare it to the clutter so common with the Mac’s Dock.
Tab Launcher’s dock can be colored and organized however you want. Each tab can be personalized by title, font, shadow, shape, color, size or position. The tabs display current running apps.
You can even set up a tab as a folder. Drag and drop files to the tab and they go to the folder. Tab Launcher is smart, too. Place the screen pointer over an app’s icon and get a preview window.
It’s cleverly done, robust, customizable, and remarkably inexpensive.
