Restore Tabs
Authored by: nicka on May 18, '05 06:00:21PM

Why doesn't any browser have an Undo button that restores the last tab or window you shut?

And is there a browser that can list your browsing history by last-closed instead of last-opened? That way if you closed a tab by mistake it would be at the top of the history list to be easily re-opened. A _really_ smart browser would keep the last few closed tabs cached so that they would re-open instantly.

Just dreaming, I suppose...

Opera does this.

Restore Tabs - UndoCloseTab
Authored by: knujon on May 19, '05 01:27:27PM

Firefox users can install an extension that does just that -- undo a closed tab. The extension is called 'undoclosetab,' by "Dorando." Note that as of today (May 19, 2005) the 'Install' link on the Firefox Extension page for this extension does not work; you need to get the file from the author at, choose Open from within Firefox, select the .xpi file, and install it that way. It adds "Undo Close Tab" to the context menu when right-clicking any tab.
