Google Chrome team thinks that there is no need of confirmation when we close multiple tabs. They want to make it to easier close whenever we want to.
And there is something wrong here.
If you are accidentally closing a window while streaming video, or while doing something important on a website, like an online transaction – chrome will close the browser ( all tabs ) without asking you for a confirmation.
We need to fix this.
Here is an extension this extension will ask for confirmation before closing.It works by adding special events to the two left-most tabs in every window, then toggling which is active based on what tab is selected. This was inspired by the Window Close Protector extension.
There are few issues with the extension which the developer is working on -
Doesn’t protect tabs that are already open. You’ll have to restart Chrome before the extension starts working.
* Doesn’t work 100% of the time. For instance, it won’t work on chrome:// or file:// sites.
* You may sometimes have to click “Leave this page” twice before the browser closes.
