Dev tools: Middle clicking a [closeable] tab title in Scripts panel should close it
Project Member Reported by, Feb 23 2012 Back to list
Open a new tab and middle click the title of the tab ("handle"?) in chrome if you're unsure what I mean, ;).

I might be able to submit a patch for this if I have time, I'm assuming I can just do the same thing clicking a close button does on middle click.
Could you elaborate on what is expected and what is happening.

In chrome, when you middle click the "handle" of a tab (the part above the omnibox that makes each web contents looks like a manila folder) it closes this tab.  This is a very quick and convenient way to close many (or just your current) tab[s].  Patch incoming.

pfeldman or vsevik: Here's a patch that does this if you'd like to try it out -

The reason I'd like this feature is that middle clicking a tab handle to close is a very common action as it works in almost all browsers (Firefox, Opera, Chrome/Chromium, IE).
Status: Assigned
Summary: Dev tools: Middle clicking a [closeable] tab title in Scripts panel should close it (was: NULL)
1. Open Scripts panel
2. Open several scripts there
3. Middle click one of the scripts' tab

Expected: tab closes

vsevik: FYI: I am in review with apalov (see comment 3) with a patch that would implement this.

Status: Fixed
Committed and fixed by pfeldman:, should likely be in Chromium in the next WebKit roll (we're already only 21 revisions away @ 108945).

Thanks for the quick reviews responsiveness to new features, guys! :)
