Cairo-Dock is an animated launch bar similar to SimDock or AWN. You can use it to launch applications and utilize small applets that live on the bar. It lacks some of the visual effects provided by AWN, but it my experience it runs a little faster.
This application is an continuation of the abandoned GNOME-Dock project. According to the Ubuntu Wiki:
