Monitor processor usage with LoadInDock for Mac

Track CPU use easily through LoadInDock for Mac.

For experienced Mac users who run multiple applications at once, quickly checking computer processor load can be an annoyance. LoadInDock for Mac's indicator in the dock allows those users to instantly verify the CPU load without opening additional menus.

LoadInDock for Mac comes available as freeware without any restrictions. Although there was no native installer, download and installation took place quickly without any user intervention beyond dragging the program to the applications folder. After initiating startup, you don't have to do anything else to use the program. A simple, square icon is installed in the dock that shows a graph and percentage of CPU usage. There are no instructions or technical support, but this really isn't needed for this simple freeware program. The icon's readout does keep up with what is currently going on with the computer in that it quickly changes as the computer works harder. Unfortunately, the icon must be very small to fit on the dock and it is difficult to read. The graph is even harder and could have been removed from the program completely. An option to double click to bring up a larger, more complete menu would be a welcome additional feature, but the app performs its intended function well.

For heavy Mac users who need to quickly read CPU processing percentage, LoadInDock for Mac works well, despite its small size and few features.
