Google Chrome Annoyance

It’s only a small thing but it annoys me. If you close the only tab in the Google Chrome browser (Windows) the application quits without warning.

Firefox is more intelligent. It removes the close button from the last tab so you cannot close it. To quit you have to click the “close” box at the top right like any other Windows application.

If you have more than one tab open then all of them have little close buttons. But when you get to one the close button disappears.

Clearly the Firefox designers anticipated this condition.

I hope somebody will tell me that there’s an option somewhere in Chrome to change this behaviour.
