Easily close tabs with the in-page border element.

More easy and fast way to close tabs. Allows you to easily close tabs with the in-page border element. Features: ---------------- • You can close the active tab by clicking to the selected in-page border element. • In-page element only appears when you move the mouse cursor to the selected edge. • You can change the features of the in-page element, like hover color, thickness, click event type and position. • Use toolbar icon or context menu to close tabs. Limitations: -------------------- Since Chrome is not allowing, we can't add in-page element into the following pages: chrome:// - chrome-extension:// - chrome-devtools:// - view-source: - data: - - New tab page. But, toolbar icon and context menu options will continue to work on all pages without any limitation. Note on permissions: ----------------------------------- • "Read and change all your data on the websites you visit" - That is necessary to insert In-Page element into pages. I do not read your data from any website, nor do i modify it.
