Hi PH, Are you satisfied with the features Apple Dock provides? I'm not.... I created ActiveDock because the Mac Dock does not have the ability to switch between windows, change the appearance, and conveniently group elements, and does not allow you to hide unused items. Main Features   - Window Previews Panel - allows you to view and switch between windows, as well as resize and move your windows - Themes - Groups and Folder Views - for convenient grouping of items - Start button to quickly launch applications and open folders - and much more I want to simplify the application and plan to rewrite 70-80% of the code in order to simplify the application and make it more intuitive I will be grateful for your feedback and advice.

Upvoting for 2 reasons;I've been speaking with Sergey since Cmd+ plus and he's incredibly responsive to both feed back and suggestions. No doubt that if there's any problems here with Active Dock, it would be address fast and accordingly

I love wood and the wood shelf theme is very nice. This alternative dock works much better than others I've tried. And, the developer is very active in fixing issues. Updates are regular, not once a year.

Pros:

Very nice themes, builtin window controls for placement on the screen, hids the orginal dock very well, the developer is very responsive

Cons:

Does get slow when the system is very busy/memory limited.

thank you very much for the support ... I want to rewrite 80% of the code in version 1.2 since the architecture was born during the development ... now I want to collect all the feedback and wishes .. maybe I needed to do a PH launch earlier

I use it evey day.

Pros:

Very small CPU usage, lots of features, nice design

Cons:

Sometimes "jumps" when aligned on desktop's right side

you seem to have written about this to me? I'll rework it ... this is also the reason why there's no support for multiple monitors now?

Nice small app that could 🎨 improve standard boring Mac dock

Pros:

Windows preview reminds me PiP (Picture in Picture) mode in 📺TV. Love it!

Cons:

Didn't find so far.
