23 Oct Apple addresses Dock issues in Leopard Golden Master.

It seems Apple listened to the wave of critique, introducing ‘aesthetic tweaks’ and Dock-on-the-side alternate mode (via Macrumors);

(Tiger on the left, new Leopard dock on the right) I must say this had me sighing out loud. What a relief that our input hasn’t been completely unheard. Just a few more days to the next big cat, fortunately!

Edit; show Apple how much you liked them listening to you and digg this

Edit 2; Thanks to Brendan for the comparison image of the Tiger dock.

    I wonder if it will be possible to hack that look into the bottom dock…

  2. I totally dig this new style. Let’s see if we can hack this so that the Dock looks like this even if it’s on the bottom of the screen…

    Frankly, I rather liked the previous Dock style, even on the side. This I don’t like nearly so much.
