Change Behavior of Closing Tabs Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
It would be great if when I closed a tab, it went back to the last active tab instead of the one above it in the tab list.

Super duper, it would be.
 
I agree. Even as an option in prefs.
 
Same here.
 
Count me in...
 
Me, too. :-)
 
It's unanimous!! I expect to see it in Beta 3 ;)

Just kidding, but it would be a really nice feature that (although I know nothing about programming) seems like it should be relatively easy to implement.

This wasn't as much of an issue when we couldn't have a single window mode. But now that we're opening new tabs from links from lord knows which tab, it would be really nice to go back where I came from when I close a tab.

Omni: Any chance of this making it in anytime soon?

Don't settle for second best and lots of useless preferences. "Last active tab" is clearly the correct behavior!
 
Actually, I take that back. What about when you go to a site, open an bunch of links in tabs, and then read and close them one by one?

Yeah but what happens more often? Personally, I'd click a link, read it, close it, be back at my page and then click the next one.

Why eat up more memory than you have to?

That's a good point. Maybe there should be two close buttons on the tabs. A second button, maybe something like a ^ would be used to close the tab and go to the one directly above it. Whereas closing with the X would go to the last viewed tab.
