Open when last tab closed

Post by fatal »

Hello,

I've just found this Chrome fork and it's awesome. There are two reasons why am i not using Google Chrome as default browser:

- Temp downloads (already fixed in this one, that's why I download it in the first place)
- Browser close when I close the last tab.

Could you make an option to the second one, like in CoolNovo? Thank you!

Hi fatal, I am glad you find this chrome fork awesome and welcome to the forum.

Will try to add the feature "close chrome when no tabs left" in the next update.

Next update will be around 1 month or so.

Have a nice day! :D

Hi,

"close chrome when no tabs left"

That's the default behaviour. I want to leave the browser open (and open a new tab) when I close the last tab.

Thank you!

Ohh I see, I just check and chrome closes the entire browser when no tabs left, I thought it was the opposite :D

Will try to make the patch tomorrow, its going to be easy I guess.

Another thing, this is a bit offtopic, I like the offline gmail app, always pinned. The problem is, I cannot lock the tab, so sometimes I close it accidentally. Could you make a lock option (in right click menu, if it's activated the user cannot close the tab, until he right click on it again and click on unlock)?

Do you mean to add a 'LOCK' feature for any tab to disable close?

Pinned mode is supposed to prevent tab closing, how you are closing a pinned tab accidentally?

With middle mouse-click (scroll-click). I never use the 'x', middle clicking is way faster. :)

Yup, closing a pinned tab with middle click is possible, going to include a fix for this on the next version.

Have a nice day! :D

Hello, have been trying to update to latest source but chromium guys made big movements on the download thread so basically I will have to re-code everything from scratch, so no easy update :(

Also chromium tarball seems to be stuck at some old version making everything a little bit harder :(

Not impossible but will have to re-think everything again, at least current version is running fine here.
