@matiasmovie You can if you check the option in settings to "close as other tabs" under pinned tabs section. Otherwise, "Don't close pinned tabs" is meant to be what it says - pinning is supposed to prevent a tab being closed. That was the original concept and purpose of tab pinning.
@opera6rules You're in good company. Of 287 posts in this Tabs section, 64 have zero votes.
I use click on tab to minimise only to switch back and forth between the current tab and another one. I rarely open a lot of tabs — no more than five usually.
With two tabs open I click on tab 1 to view tab 2 then click on tab 1 again to view tab 1
With more than two tabs open I click on tab n to view it, then click on it again to view tab 1.
Close Tab by Double Right Click - Chrome Web Store
Close tab by double right clicking anywhere on the page. Inspired by "Rights To Close" legacy extension for Mozilla Firefox.
It also works with Vivaldi
@iAN-CooG Absolutely agree.
My comment was more from a software design and development perspective. Many browsers offer no option and assume for the user that closing the last tab means to also close the app. imho that violates proper design. I like how Vivaldi handles it.
Filled 3 bug reports:
(VB-43503) Middle-click always closes the active tab of the stack but not the desired one
(VB-43505) Middle-click fails to close tabs in stacks with popup thumbnail enabled
(VB-43506) Tab Stack with thumbnails does not stay on top for further actions when a tab of the stack is closed
