I’ve use many application launchers (including DockShelf, and uBar 4), but none are as fast and flexible as ActiveDock. ActiveDock is the most adaptable and useable Dock replacement I’ve had the pleasure to use. And, each version just keeps getting better!Richard Guay
Powerful alternative to Apple’s macOS dock. All things considered, ActiveDock is an excellent alternative to the default macOS dock, especially since it comes with extra features such as window previews, dock themes, and a very handy start menu applet.Sergiu Gatlan
