    Is there anyway I can remove an application icon from the dock, even when the app is open? This particular app has an icon on the menu bar and I don't need it to be on both.

    What happens if you just drag it off the dock?

    Not really. Not that I know of anyway.

    I know what you mean. I don't need Last.fm in my dock and menubar

    The icons of open apps will just bounce back. I would like to know the answer to this question too.

    It would be best to check the apps preferences. I have a weather app that can be in either the dock, menu bar, or both.

    This one doesn't have that option, I've checked. I suggested it to the developers though...

    Hey, I suggest DockDodger.

    Simply download and unzip it. Open it, and it will tell you to drag whatever app you don't want to show up on your dock, into the DockDodger window. Enter your password. Quit the app you chose (if it's open), and open it again.
    The Dock icon should be gone. :)


    You can download it here, at macupdate:

    *The latest comment on macupdate says this app does not work anymore. This is false. I have just tested this with Firefox, and it works great.*

    Dockless also works well. Same basic concept as the other app mentioned, except you pick the app from a list.

    Check out Dockless -- it's excellent.

    EDIT: Bah! Mal beat me to it!
