Ok, I've done a lot of searching on this question and read a bunch of threads with this question, but they all seem to focus on the issue of performance and battery life, which I understand should not be a problem with the way that Android is designed. But I want to exit applications for different reasons. 1) I want to be able to quickly switch between the apps that I'm working on right now, without having to search through a bunch of apps that I opened up for a quick piece of information and then closed and am done with. 2) When I exit something like my browser on a PC I have it set to clear history, coookies, etc.. and then when I open it up again I get to see my browsers home page, not some random page I happened to be on last. I'd like to have the same thing on my mobile phone. Any way to get this easily, with one or two clicks, and not having to open up some other application?
