Require confirmation when closing a tab or navigating away from a site
Never lose an important tab again; just set a tab to require confirmation when closing or navigating away from a site. This Chrome extension will help prevent against accidental closure of tabs containing important information. Just right-click, select "Confirm Closure", and you will be alerted before your tab is closed. Credits: Icon made by Pixelbuddha from www.flaticon.com

After you've confirmed and closed it once, it is no longer marked for confirmation. So it won't serve my purpose: prevent exiting Chrome by accident. To accomplish this I'd have to open a tab and mark it for confirmation every time I start the Chrome browser. I'd never remember to do this until it's too late! I'm reluctantly removing the extension.
