Dock Detox1.2

09 March 2004

Removes bouncing icon in OS X Dock.

Overview

Dock Detox is a haxie that will remove application icon bouncing in the Dock. You can turn off the application launch bounces, but not when a particular application is requesting your attention. Dock Detox detoxicates the Dock from this excessive bouncing. Additionally, it includes a development kit for third-party developers to intercept the Dock icon bounce requests and display visual feedback in their applications.

What's new in Dock Detox

Version 1.2:
  • Updated Dock Detox for Application Enhancer 1.4.1
  • Updated Dock Detox for Mac OS X 10.3 \"Panther\"
  • Dock Detox will now only be loaded for applications you provide in the APE Manager preference pane

Dock Detox is one of those things you dont' realize you can't live without until you have had it and lost it. I can't begin to tell you how much less _tension_ I feel when I do not have those blasted Dock icons bouncing up in my face! Best of all, it is both free and trouble-free.

Control Freak does the trick (and much more apparently), it actualy works (except with "alerts" or things like that - which in my opinion is a good point) and it is free.

It's not working for me at all. I use Entourage, and even though there's a preference for turning off the bouncing icon, it won't stop. I tried this app, but it doesn't stop it either.

Maybe it's not possible... but, once again, I wish there was a setting for "bounce once and then stop." I like getting a visual alert, but I don't want it to bug me over and over...

Works quite well to get Entourage to shut up. That's all I ever used it for, and man did I miss it under Panther. Now bring on (de)Metallifizer!

This program is invaluable IF you have a program that uses dock bouncing for notification, and does not allow you to disable that behavior. The current public version of MT-NewsWatcher will start bouncing if there are any errors in downloading Usenet binaries, and bounce indefinitely - this uses a lot of processing power [Current private betas have removed this behavior]. If you don't have any such apps, then yes, it's useless for you. Don't knock a free product that's useful to others, though!

so how is this any different from deselecting "animate opening applications" in de dock preference pane??? I haven't seen start up bouncing since the beginning of Mac OS X, and I don't need a haxie for it!

Yet another useless haxie. It's been at least a year since I've been bothered by an application bouncing for my attention in the dock. Any decent app today will let you control this from its preferences.

Hi, Tried to install with 10.3, after restart finder could no longer launch after login screen. Safe boot didn't work so had to restart from CD and trash Dock Detox.ape. Use with care 'cos if you don't have a boot cd, you're stuck. Anyone else experience this? Ciao.

Nice App! And now- please do something to stop bouncing, when a particular application is requesting user's attention. Would be great :)
