Semi-transparent Dock icon for hidden apps!

It is possible to enable a hidden feature in OS X that makes the Dock icon of hidden applications semi-transparent. You can use the following Terminal command:

defaults write showhidden -bool YES

You then just have to use the Terminal command "killall Dock" to restart the Dock. An easier way of doing the same thing is with OnyX. Once OnyX is installed, the feature is under "Parameters" and "Dock". It is "Use Transparent icons for hidden applications". You can download OnyX here from MacUpdate.

Don't forget to update your bookmarks, download the new widget and check out the new website at Tips will soon only be posted on the new website.
