    You should download advanced task killer. When you close the browser and can click the widget and it kills all tasks. :) Hope this helps.

    also, try dolphin browser, its way better than stock and gives you an option to close it

    Abe, thanks for that article. So essentially there is no need to fuss and close a web application. If I'm on this forum and done, for example, I can just hit the "home" hard key and move on to another task.

    Do I have that right?

    Interesting that Dolphin works better than the original browser system? I thought that was sort of the heart of the 2.2

    If you've been scrolling between web pages for a while, you may have to hit the back button a couple dozen times. That's what I was doing for a bit. Now I just hit the home button and the heck with it per Abe's article (at least that's my understanding of it)

    Hitting the back button.

    Also, try xScope brower, it has an exit button in the menu.

    I like Dolphin HD the best. Change user agent to desktop/computer so you're not stuck with mobile sites...get the real deal!

    You can get a plugin for dolphin hd called tab history that makes going back to pages you've visited very easy.

    Don't kill tasks. Don't use antivirus. Don't use the stock Email client.

    Is Dolphin HD also an email system? So far I cannot send emails, only receive them
