How to Keep Chrome Running on Closing the Last Tab

Chrome IconThere is one thing I really like about Firefox – it does not allow a user to close the last tab (default behavior). This means that you must close the browser on a whole and there is no chance by which you may accidently close the browser by closing the last tab.

Now, Chrome doesn’t do this. It understands that when you close the last tab you wish to close the browser. While some users like it there are others who suffer the accidental closure of the browser.

If you find this happening to you often, I suggest you download Keep Last Tab (UPDATE: This tool is not available anymore) extension for Google Chrome. Once enabled you will never see your browser being shut on closing the last tab (last two indeed). And that’s the loophole in the app because it will make the browser sustain at least two tabs.

As soon as you close the second last tab it will create a new blank tab. But, it is worth it if you suffer from the last tab syndrome. 🙂 What say?
