DragThing is the original dock designed to tidy up your Macintosh desktop.
The main purpose of DragThing is to make items on your Mac such as files, folders, applications, disks, URLs, clippings, and even windows, quickly and easily accessible, while taking up as little space on your screen as possible.
The main elements with which DragThing enables this speedy access are its docks. DragThing's docks, unlike the Mac OS X system dock, are highly configurable and you can have multiple docks, customised to suit your specific circumstances.
DragThing also allows you to define a huge variety of hot keys. These hot keys can open items in docks, control various other aspects of DragThing and even control the visibility of and switching between other applications running on your Mac.
DragThing can also provide you with a Trash on your desktop, play sounds in response to actions like ejecting a CD, and a lot more besides.

Ensure you use the Apple unzipper to unzip the downloaded FinderPop zip file. Then, if the System Preferences application is running, please quit it. Strange things can happen otherwise. Double-click the FinderPop.prefpane icon you downloaded. System Preferences will open and ask if you want to install FinderPop for all users or just you. If you are using 10.7 or later, or are using FileVault, you should choose 'All Users'. Otherwise you can choose either option, and the System will install the FinderPop Preference Pane. FinderPop may ask you for the admin password in order to set certain permissions on some FinderPop files. This is only done once at installation time. If you had an older version of FinderPop already installed, you will have to logout to begin using the new version.
After installation, open the FinderPop Preferences Pane. Click on the "Items" tab, then on the "Show FinderPop Items" button. You'll be switched to the Finder with a folder called "FinderPop Items" showing. Add aliases to your favourite apps/folders/disks/documents to this "FinderPop Items" folder. Next time you control-click, the items you added will be part of your contextual menu!
Additionally, click a blank portion of the menubar anytime to have instant access to these items and more. While browsing FinderPop menus, pressing Command-Option will display a "Get Info" help tag, pressing Cmd-Opt-Control will allow you to move the selected item to the trash, and pressing Command while selecting an item will reveal that item in the Finder. Also, pressing 'i' will immediately show the Finder Info window for the item, 'r' will immediately reveal the item, 'q' will QuickLook it (Leopard only), 'g' will "grab" or "pick up" the item and allow you to drag it around (as with all Mac drags, dragging to the menubar and letting go aborts the drag.) Pressing Tab will bring up a "FinderPop Info" window on the item.
Other features: Command-control-click a folder to get a Contents popup menu. Shift-click an unused portion of the menubar to see a Desktop menu with your mounted disks and items on your desktop. Command-click an unused portion of the menubar to see a Processes menu. If Control is down as well, background-only processes will also be shown in the Processes menu. Press Command-Option-Control to kill a process.

MoofMenu adds a small icon to your system menu bar. Clicking on the icon opens a menu, in fact your menu - because you were the one that put the items in and organized them into hierarchic order. Just like your Apple menu in MacOS 9.

Namely is possibly the fastest way to open applications. The Dock is okay, but becomes less effective when you have lots of applications in it. Also, you may sometimes need to use an application that's not in your Dock, in which case you need to find it using the Finder or Spotlight first. Namely solves both of these problems. You simply invoke it using your preferred keyboard shortcut (Command-Escape by default) and start typing part of an application's name. It will show you a list of matches and you keep typing to narrow them down. Actually, two or three letters are enough most of the time. When you've found what you're looking for, hit Return to launch it.
