    You don't. The Browser and other apps stay open but the phone knows that they are not being used and saves memory all on its own. You can get ATK (Advanced Task Killer) its free which kills the apps but you really don't need it. The phone will run fine and with no lag.

    That is how it works, very different from the BB browser. It saves the last page but will not continue updating it. There is no close button for it.

    In the same area. How do you get to your "home" page, I don't see any quick way to do it other than going to the bookmarks

    Bookmark is the only way to get back.

    You can keep hitting the back button to get back to your home screen before you exit. This wont close the browser but next time you open it up you will be at your home page or close it using the task kill program.

    I usually just open the windows tab and close all open windows when you do that it will open one new one that is your home page.

    You can also view all of the open windows and close all of them. Then it will load the home page, having no other option other than to be blank.
