    Long press it should bring it up, unless it is different on a tablet...the screen shot above is mine

    Additionally if you look at the last row, you can pull up Google Now and a few other things

    Long pressing the home key brings up Google now on the nexus 10.

    It looks like you are right. I am looking around and just seeing "AOSP doesnt need one ...blah..blah..blah"

    I never use mine and think they are a bad idea, but there are plenty in the market if you need it

    I'm probably just confused but if task manager means what pizzadude is showing then you just push the multitasking on screen button. Pressing the apps that pop up relaunches them, swiping them closes them and with a long press you can get app info.

    In the Settings, under Apps, you can sideways scroll to Running where it list the running apps, and from there Stop any of them. Be careful though because it also lists the running Android services.

    while I agree with you there, I do go through once a day or so when the battery hits 30-50% to swipe away a few things that i had running a few hours before.

    Background apps are suspended, like ctl-z on unix. They aren't using cpu or power.

    The reason I even inquired in the first place is because I use Dolphin Browser 99.9% of the time. And just needed to know that when I home button my way outta there, its not still running.

    Don't think of it like a windows machine. Unless the app is designed to run in the background like GPS or something it will be suspended and not use any resources. Simply swiping them out of the recent app list is more then you'll need to ever do. If the device needs the resources it will close out a suspended task to get them. You'll probably notice sometimes that when you open dolphin it will load immediately where you left off but sometimes it will reload everything.
