I want an alternative that shows a list of all apps and how many resources they use (CPU, RAM, etc.) like Activity Monitor does, groups processes by app like iStat menus, but also has a standalone app window and isn't just in the menu bar (but I'm open to apps that are both standalone and have a menu bar menu). I already did a bunch of googling and couldn't find what I'm looking for, most alternatives to Activity Monitors are on the menu bar only.

Thanks. Unfrotunately it doesn't show all apps and processes like Activity Monitor does.

There's a small menu bar app named "AppPolice":
While it doesn't show you how much in the way of resources is being used, it DOES show you all running processes, and offers you the opportunity to limit how much CPU each process can utilize.

Might be worth further investigation for you...

It's probably possible to configure htop running in Terminal to show what you want, but it's gonna be ugly.

I checked out htop, I was surprised by how interactive it is for a CLI, coming from someone who does Terminal commands everyday. Goes to show I have a lot more to learn about the command line.

This last release was in 2016, it doesn't feel like that long ago. Man I'm getting old.
