You mean the Apple menu, Recent items, Applications list, but as Dock replacement? – Daniel Beck Nov 3 '10 at 15:27
@Daniel Beck: Yes. – Robin Green Nov 3 '10 at 15:39
I think your best bet is to check out DragThing. If that can't to this, there probably is no way. – Daniel Beck Nov 3 '10 at 15:53
Also, it's quite difficult to tell was a frequently used application is. Time running, time not hidden, time in foreground (but scrolling works for background-windows too!), etc. – Daniel Beck Nov 3 '10 at 15:54

I agree with Warnaud about using a quick launch tool, but my recommendation is LaunchBar. It's really amazing and can do a lot more than just launch apps. Alfred is also capable of that with the Power Pack, so try both and see which one you like.

Seems so:
Good luck

Well, that's not quite the same - that's recently used, not most frequently used - but it's still useful - thanks! – Robin Green Nov 3 '10 at 15:36
Oups sorry. I don't see how to do this, nor don't find any solution :( – Warnaud Nov 3 '10 at 15:50
@Robin Now you contradict yourself. Mine (comment) is also "recently used", not "frequently used". – Daniel Beck Nov 3 '10 at 15:53
I personally use whether Alfred or Spotlight to launch app and they are stored in function of the usage – Warnaud Nov 3 '10 at 15:55
@Daniel Beck: Oops yes, sorry, you're right. – Robin Green Nov 3 '10 at 16:30
