An application to keep user chosen apps on the tasktray even when open. Unlike trayit
where you have to keep the application minimized to make use of the tray, this idea would be similar to how Trillian
instant messenger is in the tray but still open as shown in the attached screenshot. This would mean you can have any app minimized or open, while residing in the tasktray.
This would be a wonderful way to easily save space on your taskbar, one example off the top of my head is when I have firefox running, it constantly uses a valuable spot on my taskbar which could be used for my conversations or current work and when all of those are on it at once, one has to use the arrows to scroll through open windows or make the taskbar larger eating up screen space.
Trayit is very similar in the fact that it does move things to the tray, but with mulitiple monitors it's easy to find yourself with many more windows open meaning minimizing the windows to put them in the tray essentially is defeating the purpose. This can be saddening when you know an app that's always open and always in use is eating up space it doesn't have to.
Any ways to make this cleaner or clarification of the idea is very much welcome.
Attached is a screenshot showing an example of how this could work but, with any running program rather than only programs that come with such a feature already.
