Customizable Dock for macOS, Application Launcher,
Window Manager/Window Switcher, Start Menu for Mac…
Apple Dock is the command center for your Mac.
With Apple Dock you can run applications, switch between apps, open documents and links.
Unfortunately, Apple Dock lacks many useful features such as managing windows and switching between windows, appearance customizations, hiding app icons.
ActiveDock is a full replacement for Apple Dock with many new features.
ActiveDock allows grouping of documents and apps, quicker switching between apps and windows, managing windows right from Window Previews panel.
Also you can customize the appearance of icons and the dock itself as you need.
At the same time ActiveDock looks and behaves just like Apple Dock so you won’t need to get used to it.
It’s the same Dock, but better, and will be even better with every new version.
Save time while working with many applications and windows
You have many running apps and windows open? Switching between them taking too much time? With the help of Window Preview you can quickly find the window you need, place it wherever you need and quickly switch to it.
Be more productive and organized
Groups and Folders can help you to organize elements by topics (design, development, copywriting) and to reduce chaos.
Fast access to applications and documents you need
Start Menu and custom icons allow you to find apps, files or folders you need, saving you time. Additionally, with Folder Views feature you will have the most important files right at hand.

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
