Plank - simple, fast and beautiful dock for desktop

Plank is very fast, looks stylish and has a nice graphical effects. Dock has the ability to automatically hide when overlapped by the window of an open program. The icon of each of the open programme appears in the dock. When you right-click on any icon opens the shortcut menu for the program. Every icon can be fixed. There is a simple animation, when you click on the icon she jumps (analogy with MacOS). Icons can be dragged with the mouse. Dock Plank is used as a standard dock in a beautiful distribution Elementary OS.

You can add a separate folder with shortcuts. Let's see how I did the easy run of games.
