    How are you supposed to shut down the browser? On most applications you either have an exit button, or you need to back out of it, but with the browser, when you back ut, you have to back out through all the webpages you've been looking at with it.

    Or am I missing a close shortcut?

    Most browsers have a close feature when the back button is pressed and held.

    Not to be a smart ass, have you tried the "home" button? Unless you want to totally kill it, that's your fastest way out.

    Yes, home or back will work fine to get out of the stock browser.

    The OS will just move it to the background so it stops using resources.

    Try xScope for a browser. When you are done surfing hit menu and then exit and its all done. There is a free version and a paid version so no need to not try it.

    I was told that using home to back out of an app was a bad thing, and that you really want to use the back button instead. Anyone know what the real deal is with that?

    Menu then click on windows then click on the x next to the ones that are open. After that you can back out and it will close.

    +2 you beat me to it. This is probably the easiest way with the stock browser.

    ATK would make that so much simpler. But there is no harm in keeping it running in the background.
