Default About multitasking, task manager and task killers

I just came across this article and I thought people here need to know about it
http://www.extremetech.com/computing...roid-and-ios/2
Links directly to the android multitasking bit, it has been said many times that task killer apps are no good, I haven't used them since I read they were bad
But remember, the v6 supercharger is not s task killer, it is just changing the values at which android automatically kills background apps, its the best form of customisable ram management imo
Feel free to post your opinion here about it especially if you disagree or think its wrong

Does anyone here actually use a task manager app to kill things?
