    Cool, but IMO, ClearDock from unsanity is much better. Why? Mostly because it uses APE, or application enhancer. All preference panes that use APE only apply their settings to each app when it's launched. For example, Shapeshifter only redirects calls to resources from the system to your theme every time an app is launched. Nothing is modified in the system. Thus, it is MUCH safer.

    I agree. I was a big Transparent Dock supporter until 10.4.2. I tried ClearDock because of recommendations by fellow MR members. I will not be going back to TD anytime soon. I really recommend that everyone try both and make their own opinion.

    I still prefer transparent dock over clear dock. Here is why. Transparent Dock lets me make my dock clear and still retain the dock outline. Clear Dock made my dock transparent and got rid of the dock border. If you guys know how to make my dock clear and retain the border in Clear Dock I would love to know how to do this.

    1. Click 'Colorize the Dock Background'
    2. Set the 'Opicity' of 'Background Fill Color' to 0%
    3. Set 'Background Border Color' to what ever color you want.
    4. Hit Apply.
    Done. :cool:
