Unlike most apps, the Android browser doesn't seem to exit when you hit the Back key to exit to the home screen. This happens even when I have no web pages open. There doesn't seem to be an Exit option when I press the Menu button in the browser, either.
For whatever reason, Android rarely kills it like it does with other apps. It takes up quite a bit of memory and even CPU time when in the background. Either way, all my other apps exit nicely and I'd prefer that the browser did too.
Is there any way I can get the browser to exit? One could use a task killer but it's a bit of a hassle and it seems to leak memory when I kill it with TouchWiz's built-in task manager, besides the fact that task killers suck.
I have a Galaxy S Vibrant running Android 2.2 with TouchWiz.
