    X-out/Close

    Just out of curiosity and for the heck of it, how do you close out a page... the almighty X up there on the right, or right click/close at the bottom?

    ALT-F4, X, right-click -> close, or crash Explorer (like that ever happens..).

    As I use the Opera browser, I tend to use ctrl+F4, or Ctrl+Alt+W more often than anything else.

    Actually, either way it is an "X".

    I do any of four things:

    - ALT+F4
    - Double click top left hand icon
    - Right click, close
    - Click "X"

    The last three depend where the cursor is :-)
