Description from store Do not close browser with last tab ================================== Chrome usually shuts down when its last tab is closed. This extension creates a new window with the same properties as the closing one when this happens. You might get a flicker, but the perceived effect will be that a new tab replaces the closed one. As there is neither a way to capture the window properties while the tab is closing nor an event that informs about updates to the properties, they are cached whenever the focus of the window or a tab changes (which includes creating new windows and tabs). This extension only works if the `Continue running background apps when Chromium is closed` setting (under `Advanced`) is enabled (it is by default). Known Issues ------------ XFCE: The properties of non-maximized windows given by Chrome are incorrect as they do not account for border and title bar. This results in a displacement when the window is re-created. Feedback -------- You can report bugs or make feature requests on https://github.com/sblask/webextension-do-not-close-browser-with-last-tab Patches are welcome.

  • (2023-04-09) Varniit Professional: Consider adding something like a user approval before closing or exiting (either manually or accidentally) of the browser esp for chrome as other browsers like edge, brave, opera and maxthon ask for users before closing the browser. If you could something as stated through this addon, it will be wonderful for users like us who close the chrome browser accidentally several times (doesn't happen same with edge or opera) and some forms and tabs are lost due to it.
