Quay v1.1.2 MacOSX Incl Keymaker-CORE | 1.50 MB
Quay extends the Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or 10.6 (Snow Leopard) Dock to show extended popup menus for most Dock items, including applications, stacks and URLs. Quay also allows you to make folder proxy icons with easily customized icons.
Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) introduced "Stacks" in the Dock, with a unique grid display. Starting with 10.5.2, Stacks once again can show hierarchical menus for their contents.
So why should you use Quay at all? Extra information, more flexibility. For one, the Dock's popups are limited to about 500 items; Quay's limit is in the tens of thousands. You can have a Quay popup on both sides of the Dock; Apple has them only on the document side. The Dock doesn't follow aliases/symbolic links in its menus; Quay does. It works for Smart Folders, also shows application versions and (for running applications) CPU and memory statistics. Still, if for some reason you want the Dock's normal display, just hold the Option key down before clicking.
Release Notes: Version 1.1.2
* Quay is now compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard).
* Quay now works correctly with the Finder's canned searches, if you drag them directly from the Finder to the Dock.
* Stacking screens vertically now works if menu bar and Dock are on different screens.
* Now recovers properly from a rare (in Leopard, at least) timeout error.
