This is one of two of my favourite replacement desktops. Its a lot faster than the stock home page, Below i will list some advantages and pictures. DockSwipe the tabs left or right to bring in the 5 icon dock. Drag items to the dock, or long-press on it to open the add menu. Using folders on the dock is an excellent way to add groups of applications with just a single click. The dock can even support widgets that are designed to take up one space, just add the widget to the screen and drag it to the dock.[Dock at the bottom of the screen]

For any screen, just swipe up, down, left or right to access any one of the directional screens. No more double swiping to get to a screen.Dual DrawersThere are now two drawer handles for viewing applications.The Left drawer is the existing all application view we are all used to. Using the context menu, you can hide applications from the drawer. Multiple sorting views are also available to sort applications by size and last install date.The other new drawer is a view that shows a combination of recent run applications along with currently running applications . It even shows what applications are running as services. Users running firmware 1.5 and can kill applications and services using this tab.The recent/running apps tray color codes the application name as follows: * Red = Application is currently running * Yellow = Application is not running, but it is running as a service * White = Application is not running anymoreLong press the menu button to open the all applications tab, and long press the back button to access the recent applications tab.
Application Categories[This is what I love most about dxtop]Switching to the Categories view in the application drawer will allow you to start putting your applications into categories. Just pick up the application and drop it without moving opens the context menu and allows you to set the category. Soon you will have all your applications in categories for easy access. * To switch to the categories view, open the application drawer, press menu then select change View. Categories is one of the views in the menu that pops up. * Use the dxTop Application Category live folder to access a category from a screen folder. * Rename or delete a category by long clicking on it.
Performance is much better than stock.

Do you have a link to it? That would be helpful. Also, can it be customized?
