Closing tabs logically

    I would like to suggest that when one closes a tab, that the tab to the left
    become the active tab rather than the tab to the right (if it exists) as it
    does now.
    If you consider "related" tabs that are created by clicking on a link in an
    existing tab to open in a new tab, that new tab, the "child" will be created
    to the right of the "parent". When you close the "child" tab it seems more
    logical for the "parent" tab (the one to the left of the closed tab) to get
    the focus, instead the one to the right does (again if it exists).

    Thanks. That worked, but I still think that the default ought to act that way.

    I'm sure that was suggested in quite a lot of feedback during the beta. Why
    the suggestion wasn't taken, I dunno.
