Opening a Folder from the Dock

Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.

The most awesome thing about this? I'm evidently already signed up!

Me too! I for one believe that PRSM-based signin (where you don't have to do anything at all) is the wave of the future.

The search feature is amazing. I wanted to find a high-school classmate who didn't have a Facebook account. Not only did I find him, but I obtained his phone records, emails, and credit card purchases!

Who knew that POTUS on Game Center really is President Obama! And the dude's pretty good at Plants vs Zombies 2!
