The funny thing is the last update for the Vibrant added a built in task killer.
I really like the Samsung one though.

It's fairly useful for killing off browser sessions with many windows, or when you're playing a game and you accidentally keep it running in the background.

I tend to use it only when i realize that my battery is getting sucked all to hell... I tend to not use it too often since it kills off Juice Defender which is kind of annoying to re-start every time
