  • (2020-09-17) Sam Nordberg: Seriously speeds up my browsing. It is incredibly convenient to have this feature. Perfect for keybaord-free, mouse-only browsing. Much quicker for me than the rival extensions that have you double-right-click to close the tab.
  • (2020-08-12) Richard Finch: I never knew how badly I wanted this feature until I tried it. Now there is no way I can live without it. My productivity in dealing with lots of tabs is exponentially better. I used to keep one hand on the mouse, one hand on control-W but now I sit back and let the mouse do all the world. Genius idea perfectly implemented.

  • (2018-07-26, v:2.0.5) Fergus Semler: menu option not working
    Hi Like the extension - thank you I can't get the icon in menu bar options to stick - it can change the appearance, but doesn't save either "show menu" or "disable" - hence always defaults to close tab using Chrome latest Thanks

  • (2018-06-16, v:2.0.5) Peter Liepmann: "read and change all your data on the website you visit"
    Create an option to delete this permission. I'd rather have to close/reopen Chrome than have the security risk.
  • (2017-05-18, v:2.0.4) Gurkan Yilmaz: does not work anymore
    Hi, it seems that it does not work anymore. rgds
  • (2017-02-24, v:2.0) Tero Mäkinen: New permissions
    Hello Your updated app nees permission to "read and change all your data on the website you visit" Why on earth would I want to give your app permission to do that?
