It really would be so much help to users if you would return to the "last tab used" when closing a "current tab", rather than just hitting the next tab back... there could be 10 tabls open and I would jump from tab 1 to tab 10, close tab 10, and expect to be returned to tab 1... Is there a reason why this feature is not being considered?

Hi @dan_zenzel, we are still working on a lot of our user experience. I have let the owner of our tab management know of your comments. Please keep using the build and let us know how we are doing.
Thanks,
Elliot

@Elliot Kirk thanks, please also consider using most recently used (MRU) tab switching when using the keyboard shortcuts (same behavior as windows alt-tab). IMO that should be the default as the current behavior is pretty much useless, and default are harder to change later. I think both issues are related as they need the focused tab history.

 

If you want to gauge interest, just look at these issues on the chromium project regarding this:
