Would very much like to see added the prompt seen in the current Edge that when closing the browser and multiple tabs are open, the prompt appears asking if I want to close all tabs or just the current one. This is a very useful feature found in IE, Edge, and Firefox. Don't know why Chrome doesn't have it built in. That's Google's mistake in my opinion.

So would like the new Edge to follow the ones who do have the feature.

This solution should be implemented in the form of a user configurable option. So that the user can turn it on or off. I e.g. in Firefox I turn it off immediately, because for me confirming card closure is annoying and not needed.

@Mitchris I totally agree it should be a user option and I should have stated that. Making it an option is not a problem for me at all, as long as the option exists, which it currently doesn't. Just like you turn it off, I always make sure it's turned on because there have been too many times a tab I want to keep open would have been closed otherwise. And if this browser catches on, then I know some of my customers (I work in IT) will want it available as well.

@JonathanLeslie Agree with you & this point strongly.  The dialogue window that exists, now, in Edge not only should be in Edge C but, it is a "Must have".  It is a "missing" item & must be put in OR put back in, ASAP.  Seems like a fairly black & white issue, a "no-brainer", as they say OR not something to debate just, something to get done (yesterday).

I have just, again, told :) this must be rectified.  If enough people say it...

Cheers,
Drew

@JonathanLeslie+1, It's A MUST have feature !

@Omar-Os 

Absolutely, MUST HAVE the opportunity to say, "Oh no, I don't want to CLOSE ALL".  I have often been irked that the ole MS, "Do you, really, want to do that" (we used to make jokes about it) wasn't there... especially, since, maybe I, actually, did not want to close all.  The question MUST remain!

Has my vote, 100%!

Cheers,
Drew

Exactly! I'm using Firefox and it ALWAYS warn me if I want exit with more than a tab opened ! And it's optional !
I exit a lot by mistake and this warning always saves the day!
I open more than 20 tabs in the same time daily for my work!
So it would be a joke if we didn't get that warning! Since I'm moving to Edge very soon.
