    Mobydock, Y'z and Objectdock are three of the most commonly used dock bars. All of them are still beta version and free for use.
    My questions :

    1. I'm a user of Mobydock but find it very unstable. Which of them is the most stable ?

    2. The file size of Objectdock is the largest. Is there more features ?

    3. Are all of them uses .png icons ?

    4. Conclusions, which one is the better choice ?

    Thank you for your time. :happy:

    I tried Y'z Dock and ObjectDock for the fun of it ... I liked ObjectDock quite a bit.

    But I'm staying away from any of them. The taskbar serves the purpose for me :happy:

    Dock bars will be much more unique and appealing for shortcuts compare to good old desktop shortcuts. Can anyone help me ?:eek:

    I've tried all three and I would rate objectbar at the top with Y'z following a close second. Object bar has a few more features and is easier to configure IMO. Not that either of them are difficult to configure.

    I'd say get Yz's Dock since it works the best for me. Also, I experience no slow down..this dock is not a resource hog like the rest of them. Definetly get Yz's Dock.

    ObjectDock is the only one which has a taskbar replacement.

    Will Objeckdock takes a lot of resources ?

    I'll download ObjeckDock after I do a clean installation of Win XP Pro. TQ for all the replies.
