Better taskbar/panel recommendations for KDE?

Can anyone recommend a better taskbar/panel for KDE?

I have so many icons on my panel, I am out of room. Then I have a taskbar for my running apps to keep thing no so cluttered.

Here is a screenshot

And then I have a panel for my wireless and clock.

Any recommendations are welcomed.

Surely you don't use all of those apps on a regular basis do you? Perhaps you could use the yab toolbar from aDesklets. Here's my screenshot using it.

You could set the panel to use smaller icons, there is something getting around that groups icons in "drawers" but I can't think of the name

Thanks for the replies, are you thinking of quicklaunch in KDE?

I know Gnome has something like that, but I use Slackware, and Gnome is no longer included in the distro.
