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…

    Nice find Sebastiaan.

    let’s hope the final build brings to an end those Aqua scroll-bars too ;)

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