While you can always hide the Dock without Dock Gone, it will reappear whenever you mouse over the edge of the screen, blocking whatever is below the cursor. And you can be sure it will happen at the worst possible time. Dock Gone prevents this by moving the Dock completely out of your way, effectively turning it off until you ask for it back.
More than one way to turn off a Dock: Dock Gone gives you several ways to turn the Dock off.
- within the Dock Gone Preference Pane in System Preferences
- in a menu
- Bouncing Icons will no longer appear in a Dock that's been turned off
- In Snow Leopard, the Dock was reappearing in Exposé. This has been fixed
- In Snow Leopard 10.6.5, the Dock would sometimes reappear after a switch between spaces. This has been fixed.
- Numerous under-the-hood improvements
