Editors' Review

+
Feeling jealous of that slick Mac interface? Check out ObjectDock, a free utility that replaces the Windows Taskbar with a colorful, animated dock like the one in Mac OS X. ObjectDock displays icons for currently running applications and also can hold quick-launch icons for your favorite programs. As you pass the cursor over each icon, ObjectDock magnifies it and displays relevant information, helping you find what you need even when you're running several programs at once. An attractive clock rounds out the toolbar. The tiny utility comes with a dozen attractive skins, and users with slow computers can dial down the animation quality to increase speed. There is one major drawback: the lack of a system tray. But if you're dissatisfied with the Windows Taskbar or just want to spice up your Desktop, ObjectDock makes a very good choice.

"Wonderful! The best dock by far"

November 17, 2006  |  By SueB118

 |  Version: ObjectDock 1.3

Pros

The free version of the program does all the basics like other dock programs, but I found that there's a Plus version that does tabbed docks and all sorts of cool stuff!!! ObjectDock has all sortsof custom alternative mouseover effects too which noone else does. Much smoother and faster than anybody else, great program!!

Cons

None really. Takes up a decent amount of RAM but I mean computers nowadays have 512mb/1gb or more so whats 13mb on a program?

"Pretty good overall"

November 13, 2006  |  By omega744

 |  Version: ObjectDock 1.3

Pros

The objectdock overall is pretty good, with the ability to add tons of widgets and shortcuts, it definately helps in cutting down time looking for stuff.

Cons

When you mouse over some\all of the shortcuts in some modes you can just see the RAM trying to keep up. This of course can be prevented with the option to turn off the effects

"Mac-ish."

October 12, 2006  |  By chrismwarren

 |  Version: ObjectDock 1.3

Pros

Fun.

Easy to configure.

Easy to skin.

Cons

Its made by Stardock.

I use my Start Menu for too many things, but having a dock and a Start menu is redundant.

"Looks great!"

October 03, 2006  |  By wyguy

 |  Version: ObjectDock 1.3

Pros

A fun to use program that makes a tool bar just like the mac one. Its pretty easy to use and has had major improvements since its last release truly worth a download just to trie it out and If you buy the full program It gives you some usefull features such as tabs!

Cons

No real flaws It crash's once in a while but Its worth it!...

"Excellent!"

September 14, 2006  |  By Roger.Morgan

 |  Version: ObjectDock 1.3

Pros

It truly is customizable, if you know how to play around and review features. The Dock makes accessing applications so convenient that I feel highly frustrated when I use others' computers and run my cursor to the top of the screen to access a program and find that the dock doesn't show up!

O yeah--to remove titles/headings under the items on the dock, right click over the item, select "dock item properties," and where it says "title" just delete the title. Voila.

"Increase Your Productivity 10 fold!!!"

August 30, 2006  |  By yknihc

 |  Version: ObjectDock 1.3

Pros

I love the tabbed "docks". With the Plus version you can have running proccesses and the system tray at the bottom of your screen. I have tabs ex. places, audio and video, entertainment, office, system and utils., etc. This makes it very convinient to launch programs from one place.

Cons

For me it took about 13 MB of RAM on average, not really a con, just thought you ought to know.

"Good if you miss your Apple."

August 13, 2006  |  By gangsterls

 |  Version: ObjectDock 1.3

Pros

Does a good job imitating an Apple taskbar. Nice customization features and free.

Cons

Hard to disable completely...you have to put it on autohide and remove both seperaters to do so.
