  • (2020-12-30) ˑ: Не работает на Edge.
  • (2020-11-27) Александр: Это действительно по настоящему работающее расширение, которое позволяет не закрывать браузер после закрытия последней вкладки. В отличии от иных решений, которые тупо держит +одну вкладку в фоне. А это расширение делает тоже самое, что и в иных браузерах, где такая функция встроена изначально.
  • (2020-01-28) Максим Нестеров (Max Nest): Конечно, штука не идеальная, но теперь без неё жить не могу. То, что надо! Спасибо!
  • (2018-10-29) Dariusz daroc: Sometimes works ok for quite a long time, sometimes stops working, I don't know why. Also, it doesn't work well when working with many Chrome windows - this extension will only work for the last tab in the last Chrome window open, unfortunately.
  • (2018-09-15) James Davis: I liked this until I discovered that, in my Linux system, it delayed the opening of Chrome by 5 seconds!
  • (2018-09-13) Hongwei Chen (Charles): Does not work.
  • (2017-04-24) なごみ: Does not work.
  • (2017-01-20) Анатолий А: If you only want to remove delay between the moment when you click Chrome's icon and the moment when it opens a new window, then you may simply make Chrome continue running even after all its windows are closed. This can be done using the “Background Process” extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/background-process/gghpjpjkgffajicbeidilgkogpmianag

  • (2013-12-24) Santosh Mitra: Okay ! this extension definitely works and it works great. The only condition is: You must not have unchecked "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed" I'm running Chrome Version 26.0.1410.63 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and I found this one works even better than others.
  • (2013-09-08) Kewin Kupilas (Nickelony): Very good. This should be added to the original chrome. :D
  • (2013-09-06) 이재헌: good
  • (2013-09-03) Daniel Gamper: Get the Options back please, i can't setting the "full size" mode now...
  • (2013-08-31) para x: win8,V29下无作用

    A few days ago it stopped working. When I close the last tab, Chrome closes. Is this likely to be fixed soon ?
