On Windows, I can add Gmail as a faux application to the Taskbar, by using something like "add to task bar" in the Wrench->Tools menu. This promotes it to appear as a native application in the task bar.
I notice that the same menu item isn't there for Chrome on Mac - at least, not in the same place. I'm looking for a "Add to Dock" function.
Can this be done on the OS X version of Chrome? If so, how? I'm sick of having my email client hanging out with the other browser tabs.
