TabStop – Warn before closing tabs in Safari

Jun 26, 2007 - 6 Comments

If you’re anything like me, you’ve accidentally hit command-Q while in Safari and lost tons of important tabs. Unfortunately there’s no warning so if you make such a mistake, that’s that. Well, not quite anymore, thanks to TabStop. TabStop is a handy utility that causes Safari to warn you before closing a browser window if it includes multiple tabs, so you’ll no longer lose those tabbed sites by mistake. It’s worth noting that TabStop does not work with Safari 3 beta, nor does it need to since Safari 3 includes a built-in warning.

    I used to like your site, but if you are trying to build a following you are not doing a very good job. The daily term may be slightly misleading. If you don’t care about updating the site you should just close it down. IMHO

    Are you guys too busy playing with your iPhones for updates? On vacation maybe? It’s been a loooooong time now.

    Safari 3.0b does this by default. Don’t need any 3rd party softwares.
