I often get complains from some people, about Openbox or Fluxbox because they lack decent panel / pager applications [ Which is NOT true ], not all the people are satisfied with Openbox's confusing right-click menus
Here is the listing ( not ranking ) of some of these applications, which can be used on Window managers.
[ If you need composite manager, have a look at Compositor for Window Managers ]
So far the the best dock and launcher application I would say. Gnome Do offers wide range on plug-ins allowing you to do even more on each key you press, Gnome Do is surely the fastest way to beat the Window Manager menus. You can also use Gnome-Do as your dock-bar ( which will need screen compositor Look here ).
Avant Window Navigator, again a very popular dock-bar application, loaded with many useful docklets, but Avant is comparatively less configurable than its closest match Cairo-Dock, but also less confusing. If you want bring up the power to your window manager, Avant is the easiest way, somehow you can rely on it for most of the work. ( Avant Window navigator can not run without a Composite manager)
This fbpanel configuration looks a lot different than the default configuration, You can get this Mac like configuration Here.
A full featured desktop panel programmed in Perl, Its quite heavy on resources, but very easy to handle, configuration is as easy as pie.
