Hello All,


Ok, so I am on my 2011 17" MacBook Pro, with 10.6.8, and somehow I grabbed an icon from the dock by mistake and let go....and poof it was gone.


It was the app/icon that looked like a "@" .....I think! But I can't remember (or find) what that app/icon was!! I think it may have been a index to help web pages? Maybe part of the X11 install?


I am not even sure where it came from, it may have been a carry-over from my old PowerBook when I set up this system? I am a long time Mac user (1985), but this has me curious what that app was. And it bugs me I can't figure out what it was.


Anyone remember what this "@" Dock icon was? It was located on the Dock on the far right where the apps end, and the Dock documents begins.




MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
