Today, I have read the ATOM syndication feed of Graeme Gott[0], who is
usually developing Qt applications, and, to my surprise, an Xfce (GTK+)
software has been published[1].

About Whisker Menu
Whisker Menu is an alternate application launcher for Xfce. When you
open it you are shown a list of applications you have marked as
favorites. You can browse through all of your installed applications by
clicking on the category buttons on the side. Top level categories make
browsing fast, and simple to switch between. Additionally, Whisker Menu
keeps a list of the last ten applications that you’ve launched from it.

Favorites are easy to add and reorder. When browsing through your
applications, right-click on any of them and select “Add to Favorites”.
Simply drag and drop your favorites list to arrange them to suit your
needs. You can remove them at any time from another right-click option.

If you’re not sure exactly where a program is listed, instead of
browsing through each category you can simply enter a search term. The
search field is focused when opening the menu, so you can just start
typing. Application descriptions as well as names are searched, which
allows you to find a program by using a general word (such as “browser”
to find all web browsers installed on your computer).

 Depends on cmake, GTK+ 2, and Xfce >= 4.8 (exo, garcon, libxfce4panel,
 libxfce4ui, libxfce4util)
