This program adds a taskbar to the bottom of your screen for easy launching and switching between open applications. Though redundant for Mac OS X users, others will find it offers quick navigation. You can also launch other applications from your choice of either the customizable Start menu or the QuickLaunch area, where you can display your favorite app icons for easy access.

Each of the active application buttons also offers a list of options such as viewing where the original application is, getting info, hiding applications, and more. There are some drawbacks, however. In some games and applications, the area of the taskbar will show up in white, decreasing the size of the screen. Mac diehards may shy away from these Windows-style taskbars, even if it is convenient. Overall, Action GoMac is a very handy utility for those who work with several apps at once, and it provides a great way to launch your favorite apps quickly, using a nice-looking interface.

Developer's Description

Navigate between applications and launch new ones via a souped-up Windows-style taskbar.
Action GoMac adds a Windows-style taskbar to the bottom of your screen, letting you navigate among active applications and launch others from your choice of either the customizable Start menu or the brand-new QuickLaunch area. You may now drag and drop the icons or aliases of your favorite applications, files, or folders onto any part of the taskbar, and the minimized versions of these icons will appear in the QuickLaunch area--not buried beneath your open applications. A click-and-hold action in this area allows you to navigate folder hierarchies, access an item's Get Info dialog box, or remove the item from the area. Version 2.1 adds support for Microsoft Office 2001; the ability to show an original file directly from any QuickLaunch item; compatibility with Apple DVD Player and iMovie; and more.
