From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
EspressoBar Sense UI Mod for the HTC Desire
If you’re bored with the standard HTC Sense design, XDA developer b1oh4zard created this little mod which replaces the original Sense UI bottom bar with the Espresso bar design. The layout stays the same, as you can see in the picture: Programs-Phone-New Widget. The small mod should work on any rooted HTC Desire with HTC Sense.

v1.1 fixed Delete Buttom in Bar
As XDA member endursa already suggests in the thread, it would of course be very nice to be able to replace the New Widget shortcut with any other program, such as the internet browser. Perhaps such mods will show up soon.
Check out the thread to join the discussion and to find the download. Advanced Android knowledge needed.
