About mDock 2

mDock is a high quality content navigation system for websites seeking to improve usability and visual appeal. Drawing from the success of Mac OS X's "dock", mDock provides an ultra-fluid method of site navigation for users, while maintaining XHTML Strict compliance.

    mDock 2 has built in features allowing you to:

  • Specify Icon properties (name, icon, link/action, target, label)
  • Set the default/initial icons
  • Preload icons
  • Dynamically add and remove icons
  • Make an icon bounce up and down (the "attention" effect)
  • Create separators
  • Make icon labels fade in and out
  • Initialize mDock 2 in two different ways (scripted or as a widget)

One of the best features of mDock is its plug-in architecture. To create an mDock plug-in, just create a new ".plugin" file in your /mDock/plugins/ folder. The images below are screen captures of mDock 2, as seen in Firefox 2.0.0.5 on Mac OS X.

Why you should be excited about this:

  • mDock 2 uses valid XHTML 1.1 Strict, and is backwards-compatible to HTML 4.01
  • mDock 2 is always being updated & upgraded
  • mDock 2 takes about 10 minutes to add to your website

I would encourage you to visit the mDock 2 home base and example site, which can be found on CellNotes.ca at: www.CellNotes.ca/mDock2.
