Editors' review

This free utility tries its best to impersonate the dock that has become so familiar to Mac users, down to the magnification when you hover your mouse over an icon. But we found its taskbar feature pointless and the dock itself slow to launch programs.

The user interface that comes with docKtor looks very similar to the Mac dock, with icons lined up next to each other in a row. The skinnable dock can be positioned in different areas of your desktop, and you can opt to hide it from view until you hover your mouse over its location. But even then, we found that it got in the way of our browsing. Unlike the Mac dock, you can't customize the dock by adding new icons. We also found that it took considerably longer to launch programs, such as IE and Firefox, from the dock, rather than from the desktop or Start menu. The taskbar feature doesn't offer any benefit, other than the ability to adjust its opacity. It merely changes the appearance and navigation of your default taskbar. Luckily, you can disable the taskbar feature through the Settings menu.

Other than a link to the publisher's Web site, docKtor doesn't offer any user guidance whatsoever. We wouldn't recommend the taskbar feature, although the dock itself does provide an alternative, albeit a slow one, for launching programs.
