ObjectDock is a program that can replace or extend the Windows Start bar. It provides the functionality of the Start bar but does it faster and with vastly more features. Because it is so flexible and skinnable, it can be made to look like any sort of wharf, bar, finder, dock, etc. found on any OS. Or it can be used to create something entirely new, giving both corporate IT managers and end users the ability to design and implement a desktop interface specifically for their usage.
ObjectBar is the first program of its kind. While there have been scores of program launching programs in the past, no program has ever been released with the flexibility and features of ObjectBar in allowing users to create fully featured replacements for the Windows desktop interface.
Design your own Windows desktop bars. Sidebars, finders, docks and more are all possible with ObjectBar. ObjectDock is a desktop toolbar, that acts as an application launcher, as well as a task manger to access currently running programs. It offers cool mouseover animation effects and displays thumbnails of open window to easily switch between applications. You can also drag and drop your favorite folders or programs onto the toolbar to add a shortcut for easy access. ObjectDock also includes a weather feature that displays current conditions for your US zip code, as well as access to My Computer, and analog clock display and more.
ObjectDock acts both as a task manager and a program launcher. Users can customize the look of each item on the dock and set various animation options for when the mouse rolls over an item on the dock. The program is very easy to configure.
ObjectBar has everything you need to build your own unique Windows desktop environment. Every OS has its own way of accessing programs, tasks, and information, ObjectBar takes the best from those OSes and gives you the power to build your own.
ObjectBar also comes with a set of very high quality, easy to use interfaces that can take your Windows desktop to the next level. It is completely customizable.
