On the first Macs I had there was an icon in the dock that looked like a springboard with an “@” on it. I could never figure out what good it was, and by Snow Leopard it was gone. What was it for? I guess I wasn’t enough of a Mac Power User back then to figure it out. A web search turned up nothing.

the one next to the trash?
I think that was a bookmark file of some sort. - it opened a web page.
@ismh Will have the correct answer.
Looks like it was a shortcut to the Apple website.
Ha! No wonder I forgot what it was. Not useful at all! So I probably trashed it right away and then proceeded to forget what it was there for.
It still exists… sort of!
You can pin a URL to the dock by dragging it next to the trash can. TIL!
