lzkill (pronounced lazy-kill) is a simple hack to 'kill -9' processes quickly but safely.

I've got tired of:

ps aux | grep -i 'foo'
kill -9 <id>

I know there are pkill and killall, but I don't always know the exact name of the process. (And killall is sometime somewhat risky)

So for instance: 

lzkill chrom

will show each processes matching 'chrom' and ask if it should 'kill -9' it.

Can't be simpler but somewhat useful.
