Can anyone recommend a freeware alternative to Candybar? I'm looking to apply skins to my dock.

Yes. The DockDoctor comes in handy for that.

Are iContainer files only compatible with CandyBar?

No they work with other programs as well. There is a free alternative to CandyBar for icons that I know support it.

Do you know of any freeware that supports iContainer files?

I'm using LiteIcon to change icons.

According to their site LiteIcon does support iContainer files.

http://www.freemacsoft.net/LiteIcon/index.html

I'm trying to modify the appearance of the Dock, not the icons. When I open an iContainer file with LiteIcon, it tells me 'no icons are recognized by LiteIcon'.

This is the dock.

Yeah, I would say its worth it since the new CB integrates all the functions of Pixadex as well and its a great looking app too.

Not sure whether it has already been mentioned, but I just found Xslimmer, and it works great.

I'd recommend VirtualBox for free alternative to Parallels or VMWare and it can be seemlessly ran. It crashes at times, but overall a good alternative that's free.

For developers that want a visual diff/merge tool, SourceGear is offering DiffMerge for OS X for free.

Anyone know of a good batch picture resizer/renamer for OS X? Kind of like Irfanview for Windows. Thanks. :)

What about batch resizer? Batch rename isn't totally necessary, more emphasis on the resize part. BUT, it must also do individual resizes as well, preferably with a preview too. iZoom seemed good, if only it would work..
