Force a running app not to appear in the Dock!
This is a pretty cool application that forces the applications that you choose not to be displayed in the Dock even when it's running. It's a freeware called Dock Dodger. You only have to run it to choose which app not to display. It doesn't have to be running non-stop. I like the app a lot especially for softwares that I always start from a file and not from the app icon itself. It's very useful if you are running out of space on your Dock. One of the things that I didn't like is that the icon disappears from the "Command-Tab" list of running apps. The menus at the top also disappear, but you can still use the keyboard shortcuts. Overall, I think it's a great little application that has a lot of potential especially considering it's the first public release. Because of the slight annoyance like no menus, I didn't choose this for all the apps I wanted to at first, but I still activated for many simpler applications such as the software for my scanner.
