I am wondering if it is possible to fix the position of an icon in the dock without actually pinning it there. Thus it is not on the dock unless it is launched but when it is in the dock it is on a specific location. I think those overly crowed docks are pointless and only for people who are incapable of useing spotlight or other launchers. I launch apps with spot light and use the dock much like a windows Taskbar. The problem I want my browser close together but I don't want safari's button to be around unless it is actually launched. I sometimes hit it accidentially and there is no point to it being there when it's not running, at least none that I can think of.
