Image from store Double Click Closes Tab
Description from store VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: After installation, double click on the WEB PAGE (NOT TAB!) to close the tab (OR to be safer: change the options to use double right click or triple left click on page) - it's actually faster than clicking on tabs. details see below. To those wanting "double click on tab to close" - Google now made its own extension to do that and more. It uses a plugin mechanism that uses compiled binary code and presents a security risk unless you're sure you can trust the author (of course coming from Google it's likely fine). Without using such mechanism, Chrome extensions cannot receive tab events. Google's extension is called Chrome Toolbox. As for the guy asking me why ChromePlus could do it - answer's simple, ChromePlus is NOT Chrome. It has extra binary code too, and it's not from Google. To those wanting "double right click" - Chrome now fixed their silly issue that prevented this feature, and I put it in DCCT v1.0.8. Please download & enjoy! This extension offers the following functionalities: 1. Double left click or double right click anywhere inside web page to close the tab (faster than middle click on tab and beats ctrl-w when your left hand's holding a phone or food). Important: if you double left click to select a word, DCCT will not close the tab - no interference with Google Dictionary etc. Double right click always closes tab. 2. An icon that, when clicked, closes current tab. Option's provided to change to duplicate current tab when icon's clicked or hide the icon altogether. 3. No accidental closing of Chrome - option provided to disable closing the last tab of the last Chrome window (Note: click the "x" on top right corner of the last window to close Chrome). 4. A feature by user request (optional): Revert the browser behavior when one clicks or ctrl+clicks on a link - clicking link would open link in new background tab instead, while ctrl+click opens link in current tab. Misc.: 1. If double click is not ideal for you, use the Options page to switch to Triple Clicks. Note: Unlike double-click, triple-click will close the tab even if you triple-clicked on a word. 2. If you accidentally closed a tab - use shift-key + double-click (or triple-click if chosen) to reopen the tab. 3. The icon shows red checkmark if Chrome disabled ALL mouse/keyboard-interacting extensions. A green checkmark's displayed otherwise. 4. Mouseover icon will give you some tips/info. Known issues: 1. Reverting click/ctrl-click has problems with links with javascripts (on themselves or their parents) - e.g., yahoo mail. It's a very tricky issue and I haven't found a way to deal with it. Maybe a blacklist? 2. If the "do not close last tab" feature seems to be unstable for you, try this first - Go to Chrome "Options"->"Basics" and change "Home Page" from "New Tab" to "http://google.com";. Then "OK" then try to close the last tab again. It should hopefully

  • (2019-07-05) Ruslanmailru mailru: Отличная идея, идиотское воплощение! После каждого старта браузера все настройки уничтожаются, вкладки закрываются обычным кликом левой кнопкой. Я настраиваю на двойной правый клик, но расширение САМО меняет на идиотскую настройку - левый клик. Вкладки постоянно закрываются без спроса!

  • (2018-10-25) 王皓: 无语,双击标签不关,双击网页关了,我就不能在网页上做点动作
  • (2018-10-01) Hoarder's Closet: It doesn't work on me. Double clicking on a page highlights a text even if my mouse pointer is far from the body of text. Not a fan of triple clicking. Double right clicking only opens a pop up box -- the one that normally pops up when you right click on an empty space. I made sure the extension is enabled, I made sure the settings are all in the right places, and nothing. This is why I like Torch browser better (just bec of this feature) than Chrome.
  • (2018-09-02) Morton DONG: not work, please update it. thanks.

  • (2018-01-27) Marc Bourassa: Double Click closes tabs just fine. Right Double Click - not so much. Shift Double Click had issues reopening tabs, it seemed to work about 2/3 of the time which isn't enough to be useful to me.
  • (2018-01-14) Josef H.: Unfortunately, this add-on does not work as expected.

  • (2019-03-08, v:1.0.9) 2xs2xs2xs: header
    Hello, I do not think it would be a great challenge for you to make modifications to your chrome-extension: //megplcpdkmjjoondippkedoaidkeikcm/dcct_options.html Double click anywhere on the page (sometimes it does not work - sometimes because of the doubleclick speed, sometimes because of the active object on the page, sometimes because it is an internal page like chrome-extension: // ...) I was very happy with Maxthon's integrated feature, double-click NOT on the content of the page, but at the top of the bookmark header. (I did not have to hit the tiny "x"). PLEASE make it one of the available options within your add-on. Great thanks in advance.
  • (2018-01-04, v:1.0.9) 霖小霖霖: Bug Report
    When I checked "When closing last tab of Chrome, change it to homepage instead", it keeps opening the homepage when I tried to close the browser, hopefully you could fix the bug in the future. Thanks in advance :)
