What are you wanting to use a "task killer" like ATK for?

I'll tell you now that 95% of the answers to that question are based on ignorance and the follow-up statement to your question in those 95% cases is that "You should NOT be doing that!". Long story short, don't use task killers. For more information, google why and you'll fine quite a few short and lengthy explanations. There are those 5% scenarios that are the exception, but generally, "You should NOT be doing that!".

For those 5% scenarios I use a feature in cm7 that lets you hold the back button & kill the app. I love it.

I wish it was in vanilla GB. I just use the manage apps option though. Just as good. Although most of the time the apps are cached and not active so there's not really anything to kill.

Apart from the obvious reasons of Task Killers being unnecessary, there are a couple monitor / manager apps. SystemPanel and Watchdog are good. Both are similar but with Watchdog you can set a threshold of activity that can alert you to a runaway app as opposed to realizing after a while that something is amiss and looking in SystemPanel / killing.

They are task killers but have more useful features.
