This is a good function I think! Many chinese browser has the function. People can double click tab to close it.

@liuyuqi Thanks for the information, I never heard of it before. If you're looking for a fast and simple way to close a tab you can just mid click anywhere on the tab to close it.

I'd love this feature. I used it all the time in the old Firefox days.

Middle clicking is harder on laptops and double-clicking uses only the mouse.

I know some might consider it bloat ("Get an extension!"), but I think laptop users would appreciate these features built in.

I'd actually like this "change" browser wide: middle-click-on-a-desktop-mouse should be activated by double-clicking with any mouse. Like opening links in the background!
