Most process management tools that are available monopolize the device screen for their display. Android typically displays a single application at a time, which prevents the user from using other applications while observing the process manager screen.
Process Explorer sits in a browser on the user’s computer and allows observation of the system while the user is free to interact with the other applications on the operating system. Process Explorer is designed to help users see the dynamics of the process they want to observe by allowing them to see how metrics such as memory consumption and CPU usage vary over time. Using a web based interface means Process Explorer is able to leverage modern Web 2.0 technologies and offer a desktop-like experience inside a web browser.
