DUMP THE DOCK

The Annoyance:

Call me old-fashioned, but I've never liked the Dock. It takes up too much screen space on my 12-inch iBook. A hidden Dock just gets on my nerves, unexpectedly reappearing when the cursor gets near it.

The Fix:

You actually can do without the Dock, using built-in tricks or add-on utilities. First, however, you must get rid of the Dock. Amazingly, you can't actually turn off the Dock-an annoying fact in itself-but you can make it barely noticeable. For starters, make the Dock really small-a centimeter or two-and then hide it.
