Onyx is a free application that can tweak a lot of features in OS X that normally aren't customizeable.

Now the dock is no longer prohibited from going near the "almightly menubar." :)

Ok, if I'm not mistaken, HimmelBar is an application kinda like the start menu on Windoze? Wondering... If so, what's the tweak to get rid of the dock, with the option to bring it back, of course? And, is there a way to locate the finder at the bottom? I know, I know, Windoze sorta but, does anyone know? Thanks!

Either what Taylor said, or just press Command+Option+D , works like a charm.

For those of you who like himmelbar and spotlight for searching and application launching, there is a program that was mentioned in the second post in passing, that doesn't do justice to how incredible it is.

It is called Quicksilver. It isn't only a launcher, it is an incredible interface for quickly zipping through every kind of process on your Mac. Do a brief Google search for "Quicksilver" or "Quicksilver Mac", and you will see all the people who are obsessed with it and swear by it. Here is a demo video of it in action on YouTube, to show what it is capable of. There are actually 3 videos, but this is the first in the three-set series:


It is one of the most almighty and die-hard apps for any system, anywhere. Seriously, do the Google search I mentioned, read about it.

If you're talking about the way the windows and menubar look, then ShapeShifter is what you want.

Dude I followed your advice and all i can say is - awesome!

Quicksilver is actually really good - I never thought I'd need it, but I can use it with iTunes and stuff, and because of the triggers I can set up, I can integrate it with SideTrack (trackpad software) so I can use the corner taps to play/pause and stuff.
I was using sizzling keys before for that, but I don't need to anymore as I'll be running quicksilver all the time anyway!
