Hierarchical stacks!

Stacks was presented as a new Leopard feature, but it is really a polished version of what was already in Tiger. It did get some improvements: you no longer have to click and hold, the overall look is better, etc. It also lost a feature however. It is no longer possible to browse through the folders in a hierarchical way. There is a new application called HierarchicalDock that modifies this behavior and lets you go back to a more Tiger-like way of handling stacks. You can download HierarchicalDock here from MacUpdate.

Leopard stacks are beautiful, but functionally not very effective. They show few items only and if you click in a folder, it opens the finder.

Yer really wished they stayed with the Hierarchy tiger stacks, they where very usefully when u had many sub folders!! although the leapord stacks do look good! such a pity u cannot get the fold out stack when the dock is on the side :(.

Stacks were my biggest gripe with Leopard, since I preferred to right-click on Dock folders to find my categorized files in various folders using the hierarchical set-up. This software is awesome!
