Scaling Switcher
Kwin Switching Layouts
Score 59%

This window switcher aims to show all open windows in one line. To archive this the information shown for a window is gradually reduced as more windows are opened until only an icon is shown to represent a window.

For installation either do "plasmapkg -t windowswitcher -i filename" or go to "System Settings -> Window Behavior -> Task Switcher" under Visualization and use the "Get Hot New Stuff" Button next to the drop down list of switcher effects.
