Ever have someone goggling your GUI and making fun of your over-icon'd dock? I sure did. Cory (last name withheld ;-) pointed, stared, and laughed -- "Holy dock, Batman" or the like -- at my (over)use of the dock as triage for URLs and documents I was reading, writing, or blogging. piDog's DockSwap to the rescue! Multiple docks of your choosing and configuration allow for a Default dock, URLs dock, various bits-and-bobs dock, and so forth. Switch by click-holding the DockSwap icon in your dock or via ctrl-esc key combination. About the only annoyance is its insistence on maximizing all of my minimized windows upon switch, otherwise it works like a charm.
