DragThing is the original dock designed to tidy up your Macintosh desktop. Simply drag an application from the Finder onto an empty square in a dock and then drag documents onto it as normal. Click a docked application to launch it or bring it to the front.

In addition, the docks can contain files, folders, disks and servers, and there are also options to display the currently running processes, and all mounted disks, in special docks. On Mac OS X, you can even show the Trash on the Finder Desktop again.

You can have as many different docks as you would like, with very flexible settings for each one. You can choose the size of icons displayed, whether the names of the items are shown, and much more. You can have multiple layers of items in docks, clicking on the folder tabs shown above to choose between them. Docks can also be turned into drawers which slide open and closed as required.

DragThing also has the ability to store and organise Internet URLs in docks and you can double-click them to open the URL with an appropriate helper application. You can drag URLs into any dock and edit them, and also import and export docks as HTML.

This download is the free trial version of DragThing. The full version can be purchased directly from the author. See program documentation for details.
