Mac OS X-Style Dock Menu in Javascript

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

Remember the time when I introduced Nice List of Open Source Fish Eye Menu? The dock’s ‘fish-eye’ effect, whereby icons expand and contract as the mouse moves over them. Now, we have another solution for it, MacStyleDock function allows this feature to be implemented easily.


Safalra has pointed out some usability issues when using dock as well. Anyone considering using the dock should be aware of the usability issues it raises. Firstly, the dock is generated entirely using JavaScript. If no alternative navigation is available then the site will be impossible to navigate for those without JavaScript. Secondly, the dock item magnification itself harms usability. Because the dock icons expand dynamically, they move on screen. The user has to correct for this movement, and this slows down their use of the dock.
