Dockless

Version: 2.0.3 || Release Date: 2008-01-01 || License: Freeware Developer: fahrenba | App Owner: blesser

Dockless is a little app that does what some people have always wanted - remove certain applications from their dock. Dock real estate can become precious, and some apps don't make a whole lot of sense sitting there. That's where Dockless comes in. With Dockless, any OS X application can be made to show in the Dock or not.

@ henry2: selecting the application via Cmd-Tab should do the trick

great app.

has anyone figured out a way to "show" a dockless, hidden app? that is, I use dockless to remove the app's dock icon. then to hide the app's window, I do command-h. as far as I can tell, there's no way to make the app visible without quitting and relaunching. (see this thread for the basics of "set visible": http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=2004032703240345)

I prefer Dock Dodger, same thing, but nicer interface.

Yeah, there always is the LSUIElement prefhack, but this is way easier. I use it for a good number of apps, including HardwareGrowler

is there something like this but for menubar items?

Also using it for HardwareGrowler. Works great!

I also use this for Hardware Growler

A great utility that I use to get background apps like Hardware Growler out of the way of my dock. Highly recommended.
