Killer apps are highly transformative technologies that create new markets and widespread patterns of behaviour. IT generally, and the Web in particular, has benefited from killer apps creating new networks of users. The Semantic Web community on the other hand, is still unsure whether any of their applications could become a killer app. This paper sheds some light on the main aspects of killer apps in general, and compares them with the features of Protégé as a killer app for ontology curation and management.
