Terminate a process in linux

Sometimes it is necessary to terminate a process (typically a browser) forcefully due to some malicious website which causes that the browser can not be normally closed.

$> ps -A % show all the current process as well as the PIDs;

$> kill PID % replace PID by the PID number found in the last step.
