KSmoothDock – excellent KDE Plasma 5 desktop panel with parabolic zooming

Last Updated on September 1, 2020


As previously outlined, KSmoothDock follows the traditional Linux model of desktop panel with application menu, launchers, pager, taskbar, system tray rather than Mac OS X’s Dock’s way of task management (that Latte Dock uses).

It describes itself as a cool panel. We are satisfied that’s a fair description. In fact, it’s much more than cool. It offers a refined way of working the desktop.

The jury is out whether KSmoothDock is superior to Latte. Both are excellent docks.
