A-Dock is an application switcher utility on steroids. It behaves like a drawer, supports drag & drop, lets you quit or hide applications via contextual menus, has skin support, and gives access to application's windows if Wapp pro is installed (but ADock works great without Wapp pro).

A-Dock X uses Themes to customize its appearance.

Here are some key features of "A Dock":
