    Chrome has severely damaged their product and I think reputation by refusing to add even the option of such a confirmation. How hard to add a checkbox in the options to enable/disable this function … not at all – it takes sheer arrogance to ‘force’ their preference on us. It was after about the fourth time of accidentally closing the window that I threw it in the bin. There are only so many times you will re-log into your bank and email sites before you get f&^%ed off.

    Having to install some plugin to fix this is a pain, especially since it should be unnecessary. Hopefully Google developers will get off their high horse one day.

    It is not user friendly at all without this function build in and the close button is so damn closer to others button that causing accidentally press easily.
    Thanks you for the extension!

    Oh dear, you did it!

    Thank you so much for this extension.
    This is a shame, the chrome programmers doesn’t built this function into the browser. A lot of people asked it.
