    does anyone here know of any free programs that let you minimize anything to the tray?
    i used to have one that did it when you held ctrl+minimized the window, but i have no idea what it was called.
    i've already searched google, but i can't find anything free, only shareware that usually costs about $20

    I know how to do it via source code. I might be able to create an executable that can hook into other applications and pull them into the system tray.

    i had the firefox extention before, but i have a bunch of things open constantly at work so i wanted it for everything.
    i'll take a look at dm2, but i doubt they'll be anything that would make me want to uninstall trayit and install that :o
