Do you really mean it kills it completely?
A single press of the Home button on my Galaxy SIII disappears any app, but leaves it open and suspended in the background. A long press of the Home button brings up thumbnails of those open ones and a sideswipe of any one of them gets rid of it completely.
This one, even after sideswiping it away, leave a handset icon at the top left in the notification bar. You can only get rid of that with a Force Close from the Apps Manager.
