That's easily togglable (and strength configurable when it's on) as kwin's 
wobbly-windows effect.  Plasma system settings, Workspace, Desktop 
Behavior, Desktop Effects.  There's a big list broken into categories.  
In the Appearance category, uncheck or hit the reconfigure icon for 
Wobbly Windows, and you can turn it off entirely (uncheck) or reduce/
increase the wobbliness (configure).

Be sure to remember to hit apply.
